The Lewis-Mertens-Inventory (NY Fed) Weekly Financial Indicators and Baumeister, Leiva-Leon and Sims WECI and Woloszko (OECD) Weekly Tracker weekly indicators by means of 2/11/2023 have been launched immediately.
Determine 1: Lewis-Mertens-Inventory Weekly Financial Index (blue), OECD Weekly Tracker (tan), Baumeister-Leiva-Leon-Sims Weekly Financial Circumstances Index for US plus 2% development (inexperienced) and IHS Markit month-to-month GDP (blue bars). Supply: New York Fed through Fred, OECD, WECIand the writer’s calculations.
There was a powerful rebound within the Weekly Tracker, which had turned unfavourable for the week ending 11/26, now outpacing the WEI (0.9%) and WECI +2% (2.0%). The WEI studying for the week ending 2/11 of 0.9% may be interpreted as quarterly development of 0.9% if the studying of 0.9% have been to persist for a complete quarter. Baumeister et al. a studying of -0.03% is interpreted as a development price of -0.03% above the long-term development development price. Common US GDP development over the interval 2000-19 is about 2%, implying a development price of 1.97% for the 12 months ending 2/11. The OECD Weekly Tracker studying of three.4% is interpretable as an annual development price of three.4% for the 12 months ending 2/11.
The OECD Weekly Observer continues to rise, at the same time as the opposite two collection slowly decline. It is very important do not forget that the WEI depends on correlations in ten collection out there on the weekly frequency (e.g. jobless claims, gas gross sales, retail gross sales), whereas the WECI depends on a mannequin with blended frequency dynamic elements. The Weekly Tracker – at 1.1% – is a “huge information” method that makes use of Google Traits and machine studying to trace GDP. As such, it’s not based mostly on precise financial indices per se.
Through the 2020 recession, the “Weekly Tracker” confirmed a extra rapid decline than measures based mostly on actual financial indices.

Recession dates outlined by the NBER are shaded. Supply: New York Fed through Fred, OECD, WECINBER and writer’s calculations.
For me, the dynamic issue method is extra acquainted, so I feel for now I am giving extra credit score to the WEI and WECI (that mentioned, the Weekly Tracker is a greater match to the annual month-to-month GDP development from IHS Markit /S&P, as talked about on this article).
