Treasury Yield Curve Inversion Isn’t Signal to Sell Stocks, Truist Says

  • The 2-and 10-year yields inverted for first time since 2019
  • Since 1978, S&P has risen in 5 of 7 years after an inversion

Stock investors were spooked Tuesday when the U.S. yield curve briefly inverted. They needn’t have been, according to Truist Advisory Services.

The two-year yield had exceeded the 10-year for the first time since 2019, raising fears that the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate increases may cause a recession and upend stock market gains.
