Chapter 10 Notebook 2

When predicting recession using the four factors, the NCFI non-financial leverage sub-index was quoted as one of the factors. However, data from the NCFI financial leverage sub-index was used instead. May I know which one are we really supposed to use? Many thanks.

Well spotted, the text indeed suggests to use the non-financial subindex based on the reasoning outlined here. Updating the notebook and will upload shortly.
