David feels that the yield curve is a critical forward-looking indicator to watch as it reflects sentiment in the bond market. Evidence of the onset of a recessionary period is all around us and is showing up in the housing markets as residential construction has entered a prolonged downturn. Tariffs persist and continue to cause economic damage and uncertainty for global trade and manufacturing.
