It's Groundhog Day. 

Here at Marketplace, we thought we'd ask some experts what they're expecting for the next six weeks.

Here's economist Tara Sinclair at the George Washington University.

Tara Sinclair: I don't know as a groundhog if I'm going to see my economic shadow because I need to know what's going on with Europe. And if it's a cloud over our sky or not.

Another prediciton from Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank.

Jack Ablin: Poking my head out of my burrow here, I think that things are looking to improve. What we're looking at is a situation in Europe that's not deteriorating, it's really just staying sideways. And the longer the news stays sideways, the more insulated I think we all become.

We also called up Richard DeKaser, with the Parthenon Group.

Richard DeKaser: If I were the groundhog, I think I'd be pretty confused at the moment. The economy's been muddling along for the past year, and I'd have a hard time figuring out whether that's going to accelerate into something resembling strength, or deteriorate into something resembling a recession.

And one last Marketplace groundhog: Charles Ballard, an econ professor at Michigan State University.

Charles Ballard: The biggest shadow I think is the European debt situation. So far the Europeans have managed to limp along and not let things spin out of control. I think that'll continue, but it is a real concern.

Now it's your turn. Tell us your economic predictions for the next six weeks.
