The yield on 3-month Treasuries rose above the rate on 10-year Treasuries for the first time since 2007

investors should wait for weekly and monthly averages to show an inversion before they read it as a "powerful recession signal."

Debbie's getting the bad vibe, but I'm trying to remain in denial.

>Can you feel it though?

We've had a hell of a run and right now everything is overvalued.  Home prices are starting to slip from their high.  There has been a steady drumbeat of layoffs and closures over the last year.  If you put your ear to the railroad tracks you can hear the train coming.

Added:  By the time you feel it it is already here.

Sorta, but like the train it takes a while to fully slow down from top speed. A year or two for things to get bad all over and fully hit the depth on the front end. I think we've been easing into it since q4 last year.

If I seem to be wishing it on, it's only because I think the sooner the better. The longer it takes the more it's going to hurt.

>hurt

Yeah, we are doing our best to plan for it -- tough going because of self-employment, but we're as lean as we can stand at the moment. 


On the investment side we're  ready to buy in after the major correction.  During the last recession we bought REITs & BDCs at low prices which gave us relatively high dividends for the investment.
