This Chart is Screaming “Market Crash Incoming!”…
Every major recession for the last 41 years has followed the inversion of 2-year and 10-year treasury rates. The reason is simple…
If longer term investments aren’t favorable over shorter term investments in U.S. treasuries, that generally indicates economic problems right around the corner.
The yield curve inversion doesn’t necessarily “cause” a recession, but it serves as a reliable market signal that a crash is imminent. You can see the relationship between yield curve inversion and recessions in the official U.S. chart below:
The grey areas indicate major U.S. recessions. Each one follows closely after the yield curve “dips” below the baseline (inverts).
In a special alert at Lardan Financial, Leon Wilfan is calling the economic period that began in 2018 a “transition” from the bull market to a bear market:
It is in these transition periods that the market ranges sideways, as fear and greed battle for supremacy. Such were the periods from 1999 to 2000 and from 2006 to 2007. And such is the period we are in right now… a period that began in 2018. And what inevitably follows such a period is a market crash.
Will the market decline by 30%… 50%… more?
Of course we can’t know exactly how far the market will decline. But the last recession ended a decade ago, so the U.S. is overdue for a “big one.”
And keep in mind that while the 2-year / 10-year inverted curve is the most important signal, the 3-month treasuries have been inverted for even longer.
In fact, most short-term U.S. treasuries have been “flat” (close to inverting) or inverted to the 10-year treasuries for most of 2019.
One thing is certain, you should start preparing for the worst now.
Even if the crash doesn’t happen tomorrow, or next week, every major U.S. recession of the last five decades has happened within 24 months of a yield curve inversion.
Who knows exactly when it will happen, or how severe it will actually be, but time is running out. According to another signal, the U.S. may be closer to a recession than you think…
The “Expanding Wedge” Reveals the End of the Bull Market
Generally, when a market gets really volatile, that is a beacon that shows panic is increasing. One of the signals that points to a volatile market is known as the “expanding wedge.” Price trades at higher highs and lower lows, forming a wedge.
You can see this wedge forming in the S&P 500 chart below:
Look at the lower red line. If the S&P crashes below 2,250, U.S. stock markets would panic. Leon Wilfan explains:
High-volatility is a direct indicator of growing anxiety in the market. When investors feel uneasy about their positions, they panic, resulting in a price crash.
To sum up: Reliable signals like the inverted yield curve and an “expanding wedge” both point to an imminent stock market crash in the U.S.
This is why it’s critical you start to explore your options for hedging your bets and protecting your wealth. There is still time to prepare, but not much.
