Dear Traders,

Today we’ll hear from an ex-diplomat for the U.S Government and now founder of the blog “Credit Writedowns” and producer of Boom Bust. His name is Edward Harrison and he’s a macro-economist and alumni of both Dartmouth and Columbia.

He gives us an idea of where we’re at in the business cycle, and his reasoning to watch the jobs numbers for a possible recession trigger. Edward gives us great insight into the bond market, and explains why it is not a bubble, but instead it’s just a market signal.
