Lower expectations of a recession in the US

The US “fiscal cliff” deal marked a turning point in expectations of a recession in the US. After peaking on January 3 (61%), the Onalytica Recession-Index (US Economy) has fallen sharply, reaching 26% on January 22, 2013. The current value of the index is roughly at a similar level to where it was a year ago.
