Recession Warning Signs


What’s a recession?

A recession is a serious and sustained decline in global economic activity.

Key signals to look out for

If a recession is coming, this is how we’ll know.

1. Rapidly rising consumer prices

The increased cost of the food on our shelves hits everyone hard and is a great way to gauge the health of an economy.

2. Rising unemployment

When jobs start to dwindle, it impacts national economies in a multitude of ways.

3. The stock market strolls into bear territory

If the stock market develops into a bear market, it may be a sign that a recession is around the corner. We officially enter bear territory when the market declines by 20% or more over a period of at least two months.

4. Drops in monthly GDP estimates

GDP, or gross domestic product, is the monetary measure of the market value of all goods and services produced by a country within a specific period of time.
