I just found a chart of the 5-year/3-month spread on FRED:
https://fred.stlouisfed.org/graph/?g=n5OI

You have to zoom in really close with the slider thing below the chart.

It looks like the spread did go barely positive for 3 days from April 16-18. But I mean just barely. Not sure if that's enough for Mr Harvey's observation or not. Even if it does, it just postpones the watch date from mid-June to mid-July.

Campbell employs four horsemen to forecast recessions.

The Conference Board employs ten horsemen. I will flip to the recession camp when the LEI turns down.

Housing Market Signals Coming Recession
Forecasts for global economic growth for 2019 and 2020 have been shaved from last year’s 3.6% growth rate to 3.3% in 2019. That estimate came from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) World Economic Outlook published in April and may prove to be too optimistic.

In a report published last week by William Emmons, lead economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s Center for Household Stability, warns that the housing signals are strengthening for a recession later this year or in the first half of next year.

A slowdown in the housing market has preceded every U.S. recession since World War II, says Emmons, and there are four indicators to keep an eye on: falling 30-year fixed mortgage rates, sales of existing homes, real (inflation-adjusted) home prices and the contribution of residential investment to growth of U.S. gross domestic product.

Mortgage loan interest rates that fall from their most recent cyclical peak have preceded each of the three most recent U.S. recessions by four to seven quarters. Emmons includes the following graph showing interest rate movements around the recessions of the early 1990s, 2001 and 2008. Precedent indicates the beginning of the next recession in the fourth quarter of this year.

The Conference Board LEI declined in June 2019. No recognizable peak in the Index yet.

Thanks for posting that report. Both indicators look close to zero but are positive.

Interestingly there are some differences from the 2008 recession, where the leading indicator dipped about a year and a half before the coincident indicator, whereas for the last couple of months they are both turning slightly down at the same rate. This means that the leading indicator is at this time not giving any advanced warning --- this just could be random movement for a couple of months within statistical norms, as in the percentage change chart for 2000 and 2005.

On the contrary, it looks as if it could be forming a top.

A critical recession indicator used by the Fed just hit its highest level since the financial crisis
A key recession tracker just hit its highest level since 2009, sending a signal that an economic downturn may be looming on the horizon.

The New York Federal Reserve's probability model, which predicts the probability of a US recession in the next 12 months, delivered a reading of 32.9% for June.

That's could mean tough times ahead, considering the measure has breached the 30% threshold before every recession since 1960. It sat at a precarious 28% in May.

Interesting chart, but there have been a number of false spikes, and most recessions have happened when there was less than 50-50 chance of a recession, and once it hit the peak after the recession was over. But despite all haziness of the prediction that chart is sending out a worrying signal.

Does this mark the end of the time of Copious Abundance? Soon time for a name change???? :P

When he was busy mocking people's day-to-day end-is-nighism, he WAS correct and they were wrong, but I've heard it said that this is the longest the US economy has gone without a recession. Even if things are merely cyclical, the good times can't last forever.

Even cornucopians recognize recessionary cycles. We make money on them. But its not the end of the world as doomers are wanting to happen.

It would just be an ordinary recession, nothing more sinister than that.

To emphasize how the bond market has deteriorated since I posted that in early January ... the yield on the 1-month is now higher than the yield on the 10-year! :shock: That's right, people are getting a higher rate of interest on a 1-month investment than a 10-year investment! 8O

But if you want to read something really interesting, check this out:

Yield Curve Weirdness

My new thesis I've been developing for the past several months is that yields on (at least some) US treasuries will follow those of other developed countries and head into negative territory. Though what the implications of that are, beyond that the bond market is pricing in long-term low growth and low inflation, I know not.

which is a pretty important point. Some here want to always point to the 2008 recession as being standard, which, of course it was not. A few of the previous recessions were hardly noticeable, in a couple of cases most didn't realize there was a recession until recovery had already begun.

End of the line

Unread postby Whitefang » Tue 23 Jul 2019, 02:19:12

Yes,

I think the time has arrived, the old ponzi pyramid scheme is untenable, very likely, the old masters of big money central bank systems wanted to break the privileged west by creating this last giant bubble, then control slaves by installing a tight high tech camera/secret police/martial law grid.
There comes the 400 FEMA family camps in mind, creating the influx of cheap labor, health care programs paid by federal tax money.

https://qmap.pub/

Now the dark doings of these 8000 deepstate families are presented to the public, together with blaming the Fed/ECB for the next depression, the last one I suppose, there is no energy and resources to make it another go.
Like the sea ice light to dark, the satanists dark to light, we are at the end of the line.
There has been a revolution last year, this year or the next, patriots and true parents will be in control draining the swamp, strategically dismanteling the old power structure, TPTB.
Thank God, Allah or the Spirit.....finally. :-D
