TOPIC: Are We There Yet? Preparing for the Next Recession
During the last year, we have all been hearing about the “yield curve” and anticipating the next recession. Kurt Moore will provide an update on last year’s program about economic recessions and discuss the relationship between recessions and the market. He will outline some leading economic indicators that are predictive of future recessions. We will also examine the length of a recession, the duration of the accompanying bear market, and trailing economic indicators that lead people to believe we are still in a recession when technically it is over.
YOU WILL LEARN:
• About leading economic indicators that are "predictive" of a future recession
• How various asset classes perform at various stages of the business cycle
• Some financial planning steps to consider to ride out a recession
