Recession
A significant decline in general economic activity extending over a period of time.
    
It is visible in industrial production, employment, real income, and wholesale-retail trade. The technical indicator of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by a country's GDP. Recession is a normal (albeit unpleasant) part of the Business Cycle. A recession generally lasts from six to eighteen months. Interest rates usually fall in recessionary times to stimulate the economy by offering cheap rates at which to borrow money.
    
A recession affects different securities in different ways. For example, holders of High-quality bonds stand to benefit because Inflation and Interest rates may decline. Conversely, stockholders of manufacturing firms Will probably see company profits and dividends drop.
