Except, despite the hopeful forecasts for US economic growth, the housing segment is collapsing…

As Gluskin Sheff’s David Rosenberg notes:

Oh, and the fact that Consumer Confidence measures are flashing a very loud “late-cycle” warning…

And, once again, Rosenberg notes:

“The gap that has opened up between consumer confidence for the present and future is so classically late-cycle. As in, no more pent-up demand. Consider this a near-2 SD event. Take out the umbrella!”

As Rosie concludes: ” the average lag time is 8 months, and the median is 6, with respect to that chart of the present/future delta from the consumer confidence report. Nowhere near what some of you were thinking. The cycle’s on a short leash (lease?).
