Muddled market; LEI/Philly surprises
UPDATE: Leading Economic Indicators surged 1.2% in May, the biggest increase in any month going back to March 2004. The Philadelphia Fed index was also much better than expected at -2.2 vs. a forecast of -17. The new orders subindex jumped to -4.8 from -25.9, while the employment subindex increased more modestly to -21.8 from -26.8. The look-ahead index (which measures expectations for growth six months out) hit 60.1, the highest since September 2003. Before that, you won't find a higher reading since February 1993.
