I think the market today is confused about how to react to "inverted yield curve" news. It has been evident for a while but became official this morning. More than likely it will cause professional money managers to shift money from stocks into bonds, meaning that we should be seeing rounds of falling interest rates in the coming months (as has been happening in the rest of the world). It means that paper money is losing value, which should be good news for gold and silver prices and the related mining issues. Real estate demand should improve too, as will the mortgage loan industry because another refinancings crush is about to hit the market.
