The following statistics were released today on the state of the US economy:

The Reuter’s/University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index rose slightly to 73.6, on improved current conditions. But optimism seems to be waning as the expectations index fell 1.1 points to 64.5.

The Conference Board’s index of leading indicators rose 0.4% in July, led by improvements in jobless claims and building permits.
