The economy is inherently cyclical. While these cycles don't necessarily repeat themselves, they usually rhyme. Understanding the forecasting ability of stock, bond and energy markets can both illuminate opportunities and serve as valuable storm warnings for business leaders. A lot of this runs counter to what people are commonly hearing in the media.
