We often get asked what our forward-looking perspective is on the markets.  People often already have an opinion colored by politics, location and personal experience.  This article from Guggenheim might shed some objective perspective on “Forecasting the Next Recession”.  While a little technical, the article tracks six leading indicators with hopes of spotting where we might be in the economic cycle.  Economic down turns are an inevitable part of investing and the economic cycle.  If deciphering charts and graphs aren’t your cup of tea: They believe the next recession will begin in late 2019 to mid-2020.
