By SA Editors' Picks :

Why pay attention to the yield curve?

In his latest , Gary Gordon outlines how an inversion of the Treasury bond yield in 2000 and 2006 ignited retreats in job additions (as well as eventual market tumbles). Should investors cast a wary eye toward the yield curve's flatness so far this year, as well as a possible yield curve inversion?

Comment of the day , from Julia in PA .

I've noticed a consistent disconnect in most discussions about the challenges that millennials face, and that is the simple fact that Angela's story - of overcoming scarcity to arrive at a solidly middle class (or higher) lifestyle by scrimping and saving, etc. - is the story of most folks who grow up below the median income line and arrive, at some point, above that median. Most discussions about living with parents, or even college debt, start above that median in the first place. If, as a child, you've never witnessed your parents really struggling, financially, where are you supposed to learn how to do that? Especially because most parents, struggling or not, want nothing more than to save their kids from having to learn what struggling is.

Fun fact of the day :

France's men's national soccer team won their first and only World Cup in 1998. They finished as runners-up in 2006, losing on penalties to Italy.
