by on October 21st, 2004

NEW YORK (AP) — The Index of Leading Economic Indicators, a widely watched barometer of future economic activity, edged lower in September for the fourth month in a row, indicating a slowing in economic growth, a private research group reported Thursday.

The Conference Board said that its indicator of upcoming activity in the economy fell 0.1% last month, following declines of 0.3% in August and 0.3% in July. That beat Wall Street forecasts of a 0.2% decline.
