UK 2-yr/10-yr gilt curve inverts for first time since 2008


LONDON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Britain's government bond yield curve inverted on Wednesday for the first time since the global financial crisis, traditionally a sign that some investors think a recession is nearing.

The yield on the 10-year gilt fell below the yield on the two-year gilt shortly after 1000 GMT for the first time since August 2008, according to data from Refinitiv.

Normally, a yield curve slopes upwards as investors expect to be compensated for taking on the risk of owning longer-maturity debt.
