We have fake news, fake weather fake epidemics, fake polls, fake suicides and now fake recessions. I guess fake alien invasions are the only thing left they haven't tried.
I've written the government off as complete BS artists with the MSM close behind them.
Just stick to social media and you can filter out the truth from alternative news sources and citizen journalists.

Do me a favor and click on the following link:
https://fred.stlouisfed.org/graph/?g=n5OI

What it shows is the difference between the yield on the 5-year treasury note, and the 3-month treasury bill.

Recessions are highlighted in gray.

Notice that every time the difference between the two dipped below 0 for more than a week or two, a recession followed within a year or so.

Next, zoom in with the slider below the chart to the last year or so.

Guess what has been below 0 since at least April?

Next, read my observation I just said above: "Notice that every time the difference between the two dipped below 0 for more than a week or two, a recession followed within a year or so."

What does that tell you?

Unemployment at 48 year lows sitting at 3.8%

The media really out of touch with this country.

I remember in 2016 this woman at work says she's dumping all the stocks in her portfolio now that Trump is president that he'll start the recession in this country. If she didn't sell and bought like I did. She would've made out huge.

Of course, create the panic, and people will follow.
