What are the risks?Please also response to this Peer’s post:Topic 1The yield curve is an important economic indicator because it identifies future economic scenarios.A recession warning is seen when the curve “inverts” where the long-term yields fall below short term yields. Investors can expect a stronger growth in the U.S. and the possible future inflation as the curve gets steeper. There are three implications for markets and investors of the widening gap between short-term and long-term yields. The steady rise in yields could possibly aid a prevention of reactionary panic that caused a spike in U.S. treasury yields. Also, the bank stocks can continue to have strong performances as the yield curve steepens giving a boost to the banks’ net interest margins. Lastly, investors will be drawn back into the market as treasury yields become high enough to strengthen their confidence. The Yield Curve Control is targeting a longer-term interest rate by a central bank and then buying or selling as many bonds to hit that rate target. The YCC could help prevent an economic recession. It may be more effective to stimulate the economy by keeping longer-term rates down as short-term interest rates reach close to zero. Requirements: indicated above
