The Yield Curve shows the relation between the interest rate and the time to maturity of the debt.

An Inverted Yield Curve occurs when one of the short-term Treasuries has a higher interest rate than a 30-year Treasury.  Inversions of the Yield Curve have preceded many of the U.S. recessions.

The Yield Curve inverted today, Friday, March 22, 2019, for first time since 2007, and the   major equities fell as follows in points and percentages:

 

Dow — 460 — 1.77

S&P 500 — 54 —  1.90

Nasdaq — 196 — 2.50

Russell 2000 — 56 — 3.62
