Economic Indicators Up .2% in September

The Bank of Israel's index of leading economic indicators rose two tenths of a percent in September, double the growth in August. The bank said the date indicates that economic activity continued to expand at a moderate rate, as it did last year.

The rise reflects increases in all the components of the index except the export of services.
