Yield curve is inverted!

The yield on 10-year versus 2-year Treasury bonds is now inverted. Inversion is a helpful signal that there is a greater risk to the economy in the short run, indicating a recession may be on its way.

However, in history, every single time it happens, a recession happens months later.

The above chart is taken from https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/T10Y2Y. Every time the chart dips below zero, a vertical column – indicating US recessions – take place.

The silver lining is that the Fed will very likely lower interest rates to combat recession when it happens.

Market is going to be volatile!
