Former U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Monday that the U.S. Treasury yield curve[s:TMUBMUSD10Y], which inverted on Friday for the first time since 2007, may signal the need to cut interest rates at some point, but it does not signal a recession. Yellen, who led the Fed between 2014 and 2018, was speaking at the Credit Suisse Asian Investment conference in Hong Kong. The curve, which reflects yields, and by default, borrowing rates, from shortest to longest maturity tends to slope upward in a growing economy, with longer-dated maturities paying out more than their short-dated counterparts; it has a debatable role historically in signalling recessions. The slope for global bonds had regained its upward trajectory, slightly, in European trading on Monday after stronger-than-expected German data. The Chicago Fed's Charles Evans, a voting member of the Fed's policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee this year, told the same Hong Kong conference that it was understandable for markets to be nervous when the yield curve flattens as it has.

U.S. stocks close sharply lower Friday, with all major indexes logging their worst day in nearly three months, after a downbeat round of economic data in Europe and the U.S. stoked global growth fears while a closely watched measure of the yield curve inverted for the first time since 2007, triggering recession worries.
Stocks around the world fell and U.S. Treasuries yields sent warning signals for a possible recession on Friday after weaker-than-expected U.S. and European data intensified fears of a global economic slowdown. After weak U.S. manufacturing and services data, U.S. Treasury 10-year note yields sank below three-month Treasury bill yields for the first time since 2007. Investors fled from riskier bets as a yield curve inversion is seen as a leading recession indicator.
Wall Street stocks sold off sharply on Friday, with all three major U.S. stock indexes posting their biggest one-day percentage declines since Jan. 3, as weak factory data from the United States and Europe led to an inversion of U.S. Treasury yields, fuelling fears of a global economic downturn. Capping five tumultuous days of trading, the S&P 500, the Dow and the Nasdaq were all down for the week. A weaker-than-expected reading of U.S. factory activity in March, along with similarly dour reports from Europe and Japan, helped send U.S. Treasury yields into an inversion, with the spread between yields of three-month Treasury bills exceeding those of 10-year notes for the first time since 2007.

Equities slid after new reports showed that the manufacturing industries in the U.S. and Germany slid in March, fueling concerns of a global slowdown.
Stocks fell sharply and ended near session lows Friday as a round of disappointing economic data out of Europe and an inversion of the U.S. Treasury yield curve stoked worries over global growth. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped around 460 points, or 1.8%, to end near 25,503, according to preliminary data, while the S&P 500 shed 1.9% to close near 2,801. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.5% to end near 7,643. Equities began the session on a weak note after purchasing-managers-index readings across Europe came in weaker than expected. Losses were extended after a measure of the yield curve inverted, with the yield on the 10-year Treasury note falling below the yield on the 3-month T-bill. An inversion is seen as a reliable recession indicator, typically preceding such downturns by around a year or more.
