Stocks tumble after bond market flashes recession warning

Stocks fell sharply Wednesday, giving back Tuesday’s solid gains, after the U.S. bond market flashed a troubling signal about the U.S. economy.

The Dow was down more than 600 points, while the S&P 500 slumped 2.4% and the Nasdaq sank 2.8%.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note Wednesday broke below the 2-year rate, an odd bond market phenomenon that has been a reliable indicator for economic recessions. Investors, worried about the state of the economy, rushed to long-term safe haven assets, pushing the yield on the benchmark 30-year Treasury bond to a new record low on Wednesday.

Bank stocks led the declines as it gets tougher for the group to make a profit lending money in such an environment. Bank of America and Citigroup both fell more than 3%, while J.P. Morgan also dropped 3%. The SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF is down 2.65%.

Daddy makes the mess, Mommy cleans it up.

The kids cheer Daddy when he takes credit, cry when Mommy makes then eat vegetables.

6. More than just the bond yield indicator

There was a run of bad news today after several months of mostly bad economic news. This is being driven by the looming and now probably unavoidable global recession Trump created.
