U.S. 5-year and 30-year Treasury yields on Monday inverted for the first time since 2006, raising fears of a possible recession. This is the first time the shorter-dated Treasury yield has risen above that of the longer-dated U.S. government bond since 2006. Two years later, in 2008, the global recession was withness with financial crises. The yield curve has inverted prior to recessions, as investors are selling out of short-term government debt and buying into long-term bonds, indicating their concern about the health of the economy in the short term.
