Newsweek: Why It’s Worse Than You Think

No, this is not a cover indicator — the cover indicator requires several factors not present here: It helps to be for a widely
tradable item (Stocks, Oil, Bonds, etc.), and it has to be something that is widely known  — A recession is questionable amongst the pros, although surveys make it clear the public is hip to this.

The economy is simply too big and too general to
be much of a trading tell via a cover. Same thing goes for single companies, too — Google, Apple etc.
