   (Corrects headline to show index rose to 9-week high)
 NEW YORK, March 26 (Reuters) - A measure of future U.S.
economic growth rose to its highest level in nine weeks, while
its yearly growth gauge also pushed higher, indicating the
recovery remains on track, a research group said on Friday.
 The Economic Cycle Research Institute, a New York-based
independent forecasting group, said its Weekly Leading Index
rose to a nine-week of 131.5 for the week ended March 19, up
from 130.9 the week earlier.
 The index's annualized growth rate component rose to a
four-week high of 13.8 percent from 13.3 percent, revised
upward from an originally reported 13.1 percent.
  "With the WLI close to an all-time high, a double dip
remains out of the question," said Lakshman Achuthan, managing
director of ECRI.
