Look No Further: Here’s A Complete List of Market & Economic Correlations

I, [Alfred Sung,] created my Correlation Economics website back in 2011 to gather a huge database of economic indicators. This is what they call “data mining”. By amassing large data sets, and linking different economic data sets with each other, you can find patterns within the data and I believe this…[can help predict the future performance of various aspects of the] markets.
