    No. Go here. railfax.transmatch.c*m Click on YoY Chart. When black crosses blue we might have a recession. Not now.

  2. Moss says:

    It really does all come down to the spreads that are being forced down by QE, ZIRP etc.

  3. Angryman1 says:

    Sorry, Moss, nope. QE is so small, it barely does much at all in terms of spreads.

    There is no recession.

    I can see it now, in six months with the Dow at 15K, he announces the recession that started in 2012 has ended.

    Equities are almost completely disconnected from the economy, either they’ll eventually drag Joe Six up, or Joe’s gonna drag them down.

    Maybe a play on that idea is to get long middle of the road retail & short the S&P or other more frothy sectors.

    Jobless claims down below 350,000…..some recession.
