UCLA Anderson School of Management: Ceridian-UCLA Pulse of Commerce Index
The Ceridian-UCLA Pulse of Commerce Index is unstable for the retail markets heading into the holiday shopping season, and shows contractions in industrial production.
Recovery has stalled since May 2010, the report finds. The index is 8.3 percent under peak levels, and significantly below normal trends.
The October results are particularly important as they can foreshadow the strength of the holiday retail market. UCLA summarized the decline as a symptom of worry on the part of consumers, and confidence remains shaky.
For industrial markets, the index anticipates a 0.16 percent decrease of industrial production in October, a greater decline than the predicted 0.11 percent drop.
