A gauge of future economic activity posted a solid increase in November, providing further evidence that the economy is gaining strength.

The Conference Board said its index of leading economic indicators rose 0.5 percent in November following a 0.9 percent gain in November which had been the strongest showing in eight months.

Conference Board economists said the two months of solid gains in the index signaled that the economy was gaining momentum and the risks of a recession were receding.
