Self Directed IRA Investing The Economic Cycle in Four StagesYou may have heard of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER); it's the organization that announces a recession has officially ended—three years after the fact. The data may be slow to develop, and a bit dry, but a little digging can provide insight into investment decisions. Here is a list of the four basic stages of the economic cycle, and some associated telltale signs of the economic stages. Keep in mind these usually trail the market cycle by a few months.At Blosser Harrison we think it's vital four our clients and our Advisors to understand where we are at in the economic cycle. Understanding how the economic cycle works can help you understand how different investments work in different times of the cycle. With our almost unlimited investment capabilities we can help you design and manage a tailored investment approach. Early Recession This is where things start to go bad for the overall economy.
