US inverted yield curve: Economic recession indicator suggests difficult times ahead

Summary

The inverted yield curve is feared by many investors in the world as many claim that is a signal that a recession in the economy will soon take place. On the other hand, many argue that is false advertisement as it is only indicating the movements of long-term bond yields against short-term bond yields. However, that as its own is a big indicator of something is happening in the economy. The inverted yield curve and the term spread, the different between long-term interest rates and short-term interest rates have been indicators of slowdowns in the US economy over 60 years now, and in all of the cases except one, they signaled that recession was coming.

Key Highlights

- The yield curve is an indicator of bond investors behavior. Meaning that demand for short-term bonds will have a different impact on the yield curve than demand for long-term bonds.
- The most important factors are herding and loss aversion effect, which both are a physiological phenomenon which takes place in the human mind and affects in a great extent the decision-making process of an investor.
- Individual investors are initiators of the inverted yield curve. Meaning that their behavior and their actions dictate which movement the yield curve will take.
