Yield Curve Inversion Isn't Threatening Stocks Yet -- Here's When it Will

Yes, U.S. stocks have already fallen considerably after the yield curve inverted.

But it is only a problem for stocks if it stays that way.

The S&P 500 is down almost 2% from Thursday afternoon.

The three-month and 10-year treasury yields have inverted, with the 10-year under 3.45%, and the three-month above that.

Essentially, bond investors have rushed into longer-dated treasuries, pushing the price up and yield down, causing the longer-dated yield to dip below the shorter-dated yield.

This reflects weak confidence in long-term economic growth, and ultimately inflation.

But how long does the yield-curve inversion need to be in place for the stock market to see a substantial drop, or even a correction?

"I would say if we got two to three months into a curve inversion, that, to me, would be a troubling sign," said Mark Heppenstall, chief investment officer at Penn Mutual Asset Management.

"And typically, the lead time between when a curve inversion starts and ultimately the economy starts to slow, is 6 months to 24 months." Heppenstall mentioned that while the duration of the inversion isn't yet cause for huge concern for stock investors, the San Francisco Federal Reserve published a study saying that it is precisely the three-month and 10-year yields that all investors should eye when considering a curve inversion as a grave indicator of economic weakness, and therefore equity market weakness.
