I'm a scorpio
Economic trends are as predictable as earthquakes. From their models, banks make solemn announcements like "We expect a half percent drop in house prices, then a slight lift in the second half of the year". But the best models are poor and lack good inputs, so the results are a farce, eclipsed by unpredictable events (like a few weeks of snow).
To allow future denial, it helps to talk of "green shoots of recovery", "signs of the recession ending" or that the economy is "poised" to do this or that. These are all clues that the speaker doesn't really have a clue what will happen.
You may as well read the your horoscope. I don't believe in them, but that's just me (typical Scorpio).
