Re: Flatting Yield Curve - buckle up for the storm?

Vanguard Prime Money Market Fund (VMMXX) with SEC Yield = 2.05% looks pretty good. Average maturity = 49 days.

As Fed Funds Rate rises, VMMXX stays a little above it.We might be getting 2.5% by the end of 2018! :beer

To invert the yield curve, just keep raising the Fed Funds Rate like in 2004 - 2006. By Jul-2006 FEDFUNDS was 5.25% and stayed there until Jun-2007 when they started lowering. The Great Recession officially started about Dec-2007. From when the rate hit 5.25% until G.R. was 17 months. https://fred.s...

My theory is that they will want to take down the economy in time for 2020, i.e. a recession sometime by 2020. Why? "It's the economy stupid". This can be accomplished by raising interest rates.

Whether or not this will crash the stock market? Probably, but not necessarily.
