Yield Curve Flattest Since 2007 After Trump Tax Plan

If 'growth' was the goal of the tax-reform plan, the bond market ain't buying it...

The yield curve continues to slump...


Breaking down to new cycle lows - flattest since 2007...

Don't believe the TRUMP tax plan is going to help the TWENTY TRILLION IN DEBT any time soon!!!  TRUMP can't simply flip a switch and make everything ok, it's gong to take prescience for years, maybe a decade.  HOWEVER,  we can at least change the direction we are headed in and TRUMP is doing that, in spite of all the conflict and attacks!!!!  UNLESS, we enact the FAIRTAX!!!  Then it could be done in 3 to 4 years!!!  ABOLISH THE IRS and all the criminals that work there!!! The FAIRTAX would be so bullish America it would simply be ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! https://fairtax.org/ Do yourself a favor and READ THE REAL BILL or check it out on the ACTUAL WEB SITE.  Don't take anyone's word about it, read it yourself!!!  It's truly amazing!!!   SETH RICH?????????? TRIUMPH with TRUMP!!!THE FAIRTAX!!!

Lol.  A flattening yield curve in a mildly inflationary economy. Have we reached that point we all thought we would finally?  The fed can neither raise nor cut?  Checkmate?  Or is this Goldilocks? Obviously fed magic has surprised us all.  Could what we all have expected come when we least expect it?   That is how markets work.
