Chart of the Week - 2022 Growth Scare?
Turning points for OECD Indicators: The latest run of the OECD composite leading indicators showed a weaker picture on the breadth front, which we find provides a lead on the leading indicators!
The diffusion index in the chart below tracks the monthly change across the 36 countries the OECD calculates leading indicators for. As the chart below shows this index has fallen below 50% from above 90% earlier in the year - implying a possible slowdown given it appears to lead the global index by about 8 months.
Meanwhile, the global (OECD + 6 non-member economies) indicator has started to roll over. Collectively suggesting that the reopening + stimulus-driven global economic rebound may be losing steam headed into 2022.
Key point: OECD leading indicators suggest the economic rebound is losing steam.
