    WaPo: Stocks Losses Deepen as a Key Recession Warning Surfaces

    'Stocks losses deepen as a key recession warning surfaces' August 14, 2019
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...ning-surfaces/

    "Recession signals intensified Wednesday in the United States and in some of the world’s leading economies, as the damage from acrimonious trade wars is becoming increasingly apparent on multiple continents...."

    "Two of the world’s largest economies, Germany and the United Kingdom, appear to be contracting even as the latter forges ahead with plans to leave the European Union. Growth also has slowed in China, which is in a bitter trade feud with the United States. Meanwhile, Argentina’s stock market fell nearly 50 percent ..."

    "Whether the events presage an economic calamity or just an alarming spasm are unclear. But unlike during the Great Recession, global leaders are not working in unison to confront mounting problems and arrest the slowdown. Instead, they are increasingly at one another’s throats..."

    "But with so many losing confidence in the near-term prospects of the economy and rushing to buy longer-term bonds, the U.S. government now is paying more to attract buyers to its 2-year bond than its 10-year note. This phenomenon, which suggests investor faith in the economy is faltering, has preceded every recession in the past 50 years."

    Clearly due to Trump's lack of diplomacy and inflammatory behavior, i.e. trade war.

    I can see how America just keeps winning. Higher taxes, market crashes, tarriffs, recession threat.

    I was just going to make a Boomer comment.

    Boomer Dad is picking us up in Boomer RV this morning to go Boomer camping. His dual indexed pensions leave said Boomer oblivious to all of this and when I talk about I get told not to talk about politics. LOL.

    It's the fuckin Boomers, man.

    For the first time in my life I have a little cash to invest. I don't know much about the stock market but I've been doing some homework. I'm wondering now if I should hold off.

    well, if you are "playing, now is a great time to buy. But you may have to jump out, quickly.

    If you are looking for long-term investments, its not a bad time to buy, but with the trade wars, you never know.
