Apparently there’s fairly a dispersion in nowcasts/monitoring estimates for Q1 development, ranging between 0.8% SAAR (GS) and three.1% (IHS Markit), with GDPNow at 2.1%. IHS Markit baseline is for a gentle recession beginning at Q1 and restoration at Q3 (so I’d guess they’re saying peak at Q1, trough at Q3). Deutsche Financial institution baseline is for gentle recession in 2023H2, arguing that sturdy employment development argues towards imminent recession. Jan Hatzius at Goldman Sachs yesterday indicated a recession chance of 25% (versus consensus round 65%) within the subsequent 12 months.
