Abstract This study compares three economic indicators often used in forecasting recessions: the Yield Spread, the Chicago Index and the Leading index. We find that the latter two predict recessions well one and two quarters ahead, but fail in forecasting recessions on a longer time period. On the contrary, the Yield Spread performs better when forecasting recessions four and six quarters ahead.
