Can a knowledgeable Fool explain something to me? A week or so ago people were still talking about the inverted yield curve, and, while most appeared unconcerned, some were troubled by the "conundrum" of short term rates rising, while long term rates dropped. Now, with the 10 year yield at about 4.8%, and the curve nearly flat, looking to uninvert, everybody is in a panic. I understand why an inverted curve can be a harbinger of recession, and how a sell-off of longer term securities can be an inflation worry, increasing the possibility of more fed hikes. Can the bond market do anything at this point to make anybody happy--or even comfortable?
