Weekly Indicators for February 11 - 15 at Seeking Alpha

 - by New Deal democrat

My Weekly Indicators post is up at Seeking Alpha.

There was some widespread deterioration among both the short leading and coincident weekly data, as well as the monthly data.

This is similar to what happened during the 2011 “debt ceiling debacle,” which makes me think that the government shutdown had a more pronounced (but hopefully transient) impact on the economy.
