Composite Leading Index for Canada
The Conference Board of Canada’s Composite Leading Index saw its largest decline since December 2015 with October’s data, pointing to slower economic growth in 2019. The biggest reason for the decline was a drop of more than 1,000 points in the S&P/TSX stock index in October.
