The Aruoba-Diebold-Scotti (ADS) business conditions index is a market indicator that uses several economic indicators to track business conditions. The indicator is updated each time one of these economic indicators is released.

The indictors used to construct the ADS Index are:
Personal income less transfer payments
Industrial Production
Manufacturing and trade sales
Weekly Initial Jobless Claims (You can download this data using Initial Jobless Claims - Historical data)
Monthly Payroll Employment
Quarterly Real GDP

There is one indicator released weekly, four released monthly and one released quarterly. The ADS Index uses the annualized growth rates of these economic indicators, except for the Weekly Initial Jobless Claims.

The reference ADS value is zero. Values higher than zero indicate that business conditions are better than average. Values lower than zero indicate that business conditions are worse than average.
The higher the ADS value is the better the conditions are, and of course, the lower the ADS value is the worse the conditions are. Comparing the ADS index value with a previous value let you determine whether business conditions are better or worse than the condition in that previous period.

The downloaded file size is higher than 30Mb and it is available only in EXCEL format. A script is used to extract the most recent time-series from the excel spreadsheet and to associate the data with the following ticker symbol: ^ADS_Index

Here are some items that let you download economic indicators data:

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
