Treasury yield curve flashes recession risk

The 10-year Treasury yield fell 11 basis points to 3.69%, its lowest since early October and down from 4.15% a week ago. The benchmark Treasury yield is below the current fed funds rate range of 3.75%-4%, with the central bank expected to raise rates by 50 basis points to 4.25%-4.5% next month.

The two-year Treasury yield, which is more closely linked to central bank policy, was 4.36%, while the three-month rate was 4.23%. The steep yield curve inversion between three-month and 10-year Treasuries is the highest since late 2019. This points to recession risks or very low economic growth in 2023.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and some of his colleagues have signaled that a slowdown may be necessary to bring inflation under control, though other policymakers see a good chance of a soft landing.

The ever-inverting yield curve comes amid still-strong labor markets and a strong retail sales report for October.

Market rally analysis

The stock market rally was arguably due for a pause or a pullback, and that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday.

The Dow Jones remained comfortably above the 200-day line, pausing just below its August short-term high. The S&P 500, not far from the 200-day line, looks pretty normal with a slight decline.

The Nasdaq is still clearly above the 50-day line, but below its October short-term high. The Russell 2000 fell below the 200-day line and pared Monday’s intraday lows.

Meanwhile, several stocks that had shown buy signals in the past few sessions came back lower on Wednesday. While Target’s revenue fell at several retailers, defensive names rebounded and defensive growth stocks held up, while growth broadly faltered.

If the market rallies in the future, Wednesday’s action will soon be forgotten. But if the Nasdaq breaks below its 50-day low and leading stocks come under more pressure, that could be a concern.
