PARIS, Feb 8 (Reuters) - The Chinese and Brazilian economies
are stabilising while advanced economies are seeing steady
momentum, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and
Development said on Monday.
    The Paris-based organisation said its December monthly
composite leading indicators (CLIs), which are supposed to
capture economic turning points, confirmed the "tentative signs
of stabilisation" in China and Brazil seen in November.
    While momentum was stable in the broader OECD, the
indicators for the United States and Britain were suggesting
easing growth with similar signals emerging in Canada and Japan.
    "In the euro area as a whole, and in Germany and Italy, CLIs
signal stable growth momentum while in France the outlook is for
firming growth."
