DJ-BTMU U.S. Business Barometer was unchanged
For the week ending September 12, 2009, the DJ-BTMU U.S. Business Barometer was flat. Since July, however, the barometer has made a sharp upturn thereby signaling the start of recovery, though the absolute level of the barometer suggests economic activity in general remains quite depressed. Following a pop in economic growth in the third quarter, helped by the cash-for-clunkers program, we will watch for signs from the barometer on how the payback period will affect the final quarter of the year now that the program has ended.
