Britain's Inverted Yield Curve Is Nothing Like America's

The phenomenon may have heralded the last seven U.S. recessions but in Britain it’s a different story. Plus QE makes it hard to read the bond market.

Most economist and market pundit's are wrong when they try to predict the future. How many times have you heard some oil analyst say oil was going to 100 then it falls to 50. Everyday on CNBC there is someone who "suggest" a market is going to go somewhere wall street is mostly made up of money making schemes off speculation of the ill-informed.

Much like the gold rush in western US, or Alaska the people who made all the money were the suppliers while 1% ever made billions on actually finding gold.

Don't ever make a financial decision based on market news, forum post, pundit's, or analyst. I have to admit I have done it learned my lesson lost out on some big stock moves because of it.

I know reading is hard.


THe inverted yield curve is a 'forecast' of things to come. It can be a month or even a year......but since 1955 every inverted yield curve has happened before a recession or downturn.

Think about it -- it means people feel less confident in what will happen later rather than sooner.

Every financial decision is based on some kind of market news, forecast, analyst........

Nobody just randomly decides -- hey I'm going to ignore everything and just do what I want - and then make millions based on that.

Maybe I read it wrong, but is he actually saying positive things about the Federal Reserve's role during the recession? If so, his credibility goes out the window for me. They did the equivalent of feeding more alcohol to a hungover friend to fix their nausea...technically it works, but you're just putting off the problem and making it worse down the line.

That's why Trump should never have taken credit for the economy. When it crashes, he gets the blame and attention that the FED should be getting.

True.

But the Fed owns Trump.

Actually the Fed owns all of us but I digress.

The " White Nationalist " psycho hoax going nowhere they really had no choice but to move on to the next psycho hoax
de jour .
It will be back to "impeachment " again by next week .
They are not "running out" of bullets , they are all out of bullets .
Trump has beaten them severely & non-stop for three years and counting .
It is the political equivalent of the battered and abused spouse syndrome .
