If my inbox, the headlines, and the magazine covers are any indication, there is a recession knocking on our door.  How could that affect your accounts? And, what can we do?  That’s our topic for  this episode of What’s Happening Now.

The Inverted Yield Curve

The yield curve “inverts” when yields on short term debt exceed those for long term debt.  Right now the yield for 3 month notes is higher than 1 year, 3 year, 5 year, and 10 year bonds.

This has happened nine times since the 1960’s.  Seven of those periods came before a recession.

Whether it predicts a recession this time remains to be seen.

Last week we talked about the most recent Social Security Scam.  You can listen to that episode here.
