DOW down 600 on fears of recession?

Ten year treasury under 2% (yield?) now. Glad I'm mostly out, but we're all still affected.

2. No, 1000 is too low now ... needs about 2500 to wake people up and stay their over a week or 2

3. I wish. Yesterday, my investment advisor said

He wished MF45 would shut up. That would help stabilize markets if someone took his cell away.

4. All Dems Should Be Very Vocal And Begin Pointing Fingers At Trump & The Repugs....

The Dems need to set the narrative on this before Trump and the Repugs do.

6. Yield inversion at play:

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was at 1.623%, below the 2-year yield at 1.634%.

The last inversion of this part of the yield curve was in December 2005, two years before a recession brought on by the financial crisis hit.

A recession occurs, on average, 22 months following such an inversion, according to Credit Suisse.
