The yield curve is signaling a 'black swan' event in 2024, this is what it could be - George Gammon
10-year Treasury yielding 4.2%, 2-year Treasury yielding 4.9%.

The inversion of the yield curve has "incredible" predictive powers, and it is now telling investors that a global financial crisis 2.0 could hit the world economy in 2024, said George Gammon, an investor, macroeconomics expert, and host of the Rebel Capitalist Show.
"If you go back to the 1950s, you see that the inversion of the yield curve has incredible accuracy as far as its predictive power,"
At the time of writing, the U.S. 10-year Treasury was yielding 4.2%, and the U.S. 2-year Treasury was yielding 4.9%.
Goldman has cut the chances of the U.S. falling into recession over the next 12 months to 15% — its third upgrade to its economic outlook in four months.
However, according to Gammon, this yield curve inversion is the key sign that a "black swan" event is coming because it points to what financial insiders are doing behind the scenes.
"What I would suggest all of your viewers do is very simple — just watch the 2-year and the 10-year. Right now, the 2-year yield is trading above the 10-year. Watch for that to slowly go down," he said. "When it gets down to that 10-year level and then drops below it, that's when you really have to be risk-off, and that's when you really have to be paying attention."
There is a very high probability that the yield curve could uninvert when the Federal Reserve starts dropping rates, Gammon pointed out. But the only way that could happen is if there is a black swan event in the form of a global financial crisis 2.0
what that black swan event could be going into 2024, discussing a potential China collapse, a WW3 scenario, and a real estate crisis.
