En este trabajo se describe la construcción de un nuevo indicador mensual líder de la actividad económica en Colombia (IMACO). El procedimiento se basa en un algoritmo de búsqueda heurístico que identifica siete variables líderes del nivel de actividad, que anticipan los movimientos del PIB con cinco meses de adelanto y una correlación del 93%. Asimismo, el IMACO tiene otras propiedades predictivas deseables: anticipa los puntos de quiebre del ciclo económico colombiano sin arrojar señales falsas, y minimiza los errores de pronóstico sobre el crecimiento del PIB. Dada su simplicidad y bajo costo computacional, el IMACO provee una herramienta para el seguimiento continuo de la coyuntura y el diseño de la política económica, que puede ser replicado tanto para otros agregados macroeconómicos en Colombia así como en otros países de la región.
