Green denotes a leading series.

Red denotes a leading price (level or growth) series.
Black denotes a coincident price (level or growth) series.

Grey-shaded areas represent business cycle recessions, or cyclical downswings, in the level of a series.

Orange-shaded areas represent growth rate cycle downturns, or cyclical downswings, in the growth rate of a series.

Green-shaded areas represent cyclical downswings in a price level series.
