It’s Time to Pay Attention to the Yield Curve Again

Dear Reader,

CJ here…

It’s said that “nothing in life is certain except for death and taxes.”

I’m starting to think that something about yield curve inversions may need to be added.

We’ve heard for more than a year that the yield curve inversion is nothing to worry about and that “this time is different.” But last night I stayed up late looking into the history of the yield curve as an indicator.

And frankly, it’s got me a little worried.

Now let’s face it, most economic data does a bad job of calling tops or bottoms in the market. Using them is like watching the calendar when you should be looking at your watch.

But they’re also like the tortoise from that famous race, eventually they’re right.

Let’s take a few minutes to go through my take on the yield curve versus seasonality and what you should be watching over the next three weeks to position your portfolio like a pro.

As always, I wish you the best trading success,
