Daily Reading on the Financial Markets: 1/31/12

The ECRI has yet to retract its recession call from September, 2011.  But New Deal Democrat on the bonddad blog has some suggestions for what might be in the WLI Index that ECRI used to make the call.

John Hussman isn’t backing off his suspicion that recession is likely on the way.

Zero Hedge notes that while short-term volatility has contracted, long-term volatility remains stubbornly high.  Got long-dated puts?

At All Star Charts, J.C. Parets says “pay no attention to the golden cross“, which now appears imminent.
