Personally, I think we are a bit away from any real recession. There are a few scenarios that should tell us when we are near:

Sharp rise in wages
Rising inflation
Fed gets aggressive with interest rates
Dip in consumer confidence
Business becomes cautious about investing in growth

In addition, any trade war talks that are prolonged and or a handful of leading indicators weaken (a leading indicator is a factor of economy that experiences significant movement or change prior to the rest of the economy).

Call with any questions and have a great week!
