Recession Model Forecast: 03-01-2017

The following article updates the diffusion index, recession slack index, aggregate recession model, and aggregate peak-trough model through February 2017. Throughout 2015, I added a number of new economic and market-based variables with very strong explanatory power to the recession model.

No Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) Model Post this Month

I finished the VIX futures project and I am trading the new hedged VIX futures strategy. However, I am now working on a new in-depth options article and do not anticipate releasing new Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) model posts until after the new options article has been published.

Look for the new article on Amazon in the next few months.
