The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) announced that its composite leading indicators (CLIs) continue to anticipate stable growth momentum in the OECD area as a whole. The CLIs are designed to anticipate turning points in economic activity relative to trend six to nine months ahead,

The CLI for Germany points to easing growth momentum, while in France, Italy and the euro area as a whole, the CLIs confirm the signs of easing growth momentum flagged in last month's assessment. Continued weakening of growth momentum is anticipated in the United Kingdom.
