The Inverted Yield Curve – What Does It Mean to Me?

Investors who follow the markets have seen headlines in recent weeks about something called the “inverted yield curve.” For those less familiar with the phenomenon, an inverted yield curve is essentially a point on a chart where short-term investments in U.S. Treasury bonds pay more than long-term ones.
