The financial system is now screaming “RECESSION!”
The yield curve is perhaps the single best predictor of recessions in the world. If you’re unfamiliar with how the yield curve works works, in broad terms, there are three categories of U.S. debt: Treasury Bills or T-bills (usually short-term debt), Treasury Notes (long-term debt up to 10 years), and Treasury Bonds (long-term debt for 20 or 30 years).
Treasury Bill Maturation Periods:
Treasury Note Maturation Periods
Treasury Bond Maturation Periods
The yield curve is comprised of comparing the yields on these various bonds. One of the most common ones used for economic predictions is the 2s10s: what you get when you subtract the yield on the 2-Year Treasury from the 10-Year Treasury.
Whenever the yield on the 2-Year Treasury exceeds that of the 10-Year Treasury, the yield curve is inverted. This ONLY happens before a recession. And right now, it is more inverted than at any point since the year 2000.
This is effectively the bond market, which is the single best predictor of recessions on the planet, SCREAMING that a recession is coming.
What does this mean for stocks?
I’ve illustrated the last FOUR yield curve inversions on the below chart. You can see what came next for the stock market.
Buckle up… a crash is coming.
If you’re looking for a way to profit from this… while avoiding the major losses that will cripple most investors’ portfolios, our Stock Market Crash Survival Guide can show you how.
Within its 21 pages we outline which investments will perform best during a market meltdown as well as how to take out “Crash insurance” on your portfolio (these instruments returned TRIPLE digit gains during 2008).
