Breakingviews - U.S. recession signal bears clear fingerprints

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst NEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - A U.S. recession warning from financial markets has Donald Trump’s fingerprints all over it. A key bond market metric turned negative for the first time since 2007 on Wednesday, sending stocks tumbling. Other economic indicators in the United States and abroad are deteriorating. The common thread linking these is the president’s trade war. The U.S. economy started the year with a good head of steam. Growth hit a three-year high of 2.9% in 2018, corporate coffers were swelling from the tax cuts the president signed into law a year earlier, and unemployment stood at the lowest level in nearly a half century. Sluggish growth overseas and a negative market reaction to the Federal Reserve’s December rate hike suggested some fragility, but virtually nobody was predicting a recession before 2021. The White House has since escalated trade tensions, with Trump twice in the past three months announcing tariff increases affecting some $500 billion of imports from China. As a result the yield on the Treasury’s benchmark 10-year note has since early May fallen by nearly a percentage point, to 1.59% Wednesday afternoon. Earlier in the day it briefly traded below the return on the Treasury’s 2-year note, something investors haven’t seen since June 2007. That spooked equity markets, with the S&P 500 Index down nearly 3% in early afternoon trading. Such a yield-curve inversion, as it’s called, has preceded each of the last five U.S. recessions. It also coincides with mounting signs of stress. U.S. business confidence has fallen below its long-term average this year, according to data compiled by Moody’s, and investment in non-residential structures fell over 10% in the second quarter. New data on Wednesday showed that China’s industrial production grew at the slowest rate in 17 years in July while Germany’s economic output shrank slightly in the second quarter. Further rate cuts appear inevitable, with interest rate futures pointing to an 81% probability that the Fed will lower rates by a quarter-point in September, according to CME’s FedWatch tool. That would represent a win for Trump, who has been berating Fed Chair Jay Powell for not cutting rates quickly enough. But the collateral damage of his trade policy is a massive price to pay.

TrumpRecession ImpeachNow BankruptDon Time for another illegal invasion, Whose prints ? Right after Twitler got elected, Economists predicted that a recession would start in late 2019 early 2020.
A one-day loss of the market is hardly a credible sign of recession. This Bullshit is what a Trump Supporter wanted Pro tip: Should have tried to reduce the deficit the last couple of years during expansion instead of the approaching trillion dollar annual deficit thanks to stupid tax cut. Now tool box to fight coming recession is empty for fiscal stimulus. StableGenius

Why would people in the treasury also be trying to stop him? Literally he is not a stupid man! And the economy is one of his biggest sells for a 2020 reelection!! Why would he trash that You make seton sense!!
What’s clear is your desire to be complicit in this game of deceit. It’s why the media has a rating of confidence as low as Congressional Democrats and RINOS. Way to go Don 🙄 Fake news. Ummm, more rumors, fakenews Bullshit This is nothing more than the Globalist and Wall Street fighting for the millions $$ at steak. The sooner people open their eyes the better off we will be!
Pure BS propaganda. Yellen just put the lie to you. Hint:This won't work, either, fake news.

LibRag. “Clear” and “tiny” fingerprints 'breakingviews?' you mean propagandaviews. Economy is the greatest it's been is many decades, just admit POTUS ain't playing your swamp game. So stop trying to cause a recession for the 2020 election. Vote OUT of our gov every last denocrat/liberal, they're enemies of the people
This is why you are enemy of the people. Surprise! The media can’t beat Trump any other way so it’s decided to instill fear of a fake ass recession just in time for the 2020 campaign. Jesus Christ, you’re so obvious. Dems intentionally crash a bull market to own the cons First of all there’s one indicator. People are jumping to this conclusion without real tangible facts. Even Fox Business did this AM.
Will be in a recession if the market gets down to Obama years meanwhile stay tough Mr. President Trump with China
US Treasury yields mixed as recession signal nears inversionU.S. government debt yields were mixed Wednesday morning, as global trade developments offered much-needed relief for markets. Scare campaigns I don’t think we will have a recession under trump. Though we are 3 years over due for a recession. More American jobs than ever. I don’t understand what everyone is afraid of a trade war. CNBC have become the Doom and Gloom merchants of 21st Century.
Little baby fingerprints. It is probably wrong to put all the blame on Trump...after all, ?who? lobbied for corporate tax repatriation that resulted in corporate stock buy-backs...and systemic corporate over-valuation? This is more fake news from the left. It is making me sick today! It is like a memo was sent out! The economy is the only possible way to defeat Trump! Meanwhile my husbands business is doing great, busiest summer in 5 years for our vacation rental and the town, everyone is optimistic and then all of this today!!!
FakeNews Every time the fed reserve sticks it's 2cents in. Everything was going along fine.... See you in Mar-a-Lago Good for business more money in my pocket Not to worry! He’ll blame Obama & the Fed. The Trump Recession Live! Trump tweets, the markets tank. Trump’s Tariffs...farm bankruptcy abounds. Trump’s Foreign Policy - nonexistent. Trump Recession coming to a neighborhood near you.

5 things to know before the stock market opens WednesdayDow set to drop; bonds flash recession signal; Chinese economic data weakens; China blames the US for Hong Kong protests; mortgage refinances surge The Dow is set to drop about 200 points Wednesday morning after key bond yields invert. Sell Sell Sell!!
Lol. There is no recession. Stop trying to meme on into being. ... meanwhile Made companies go bust now Americans turn... bet he has still made personal money There is no recession! This is another devious way to get to Trump's expulsion from his Presidency. Is the Federal Reserve crooked enough to force into the millions of American minds that a recession is coming? Conspiracy in the works? Europe in financial ruin?China freakingout?
Reuters has joined American media in Trump-bashing. This is not analysis but stupid propaganda. Trump is the first president who will not tolerate China's theft of our wealth and technology. If China would rather suffer economically than trade fairly, that's not Trump's fault. So Reuter’s is now fear mongering to help their Democrat acolytes push a narrative . Such a joke
I get the gist of it, but did I miss a smoking gun? He can now say he invented recession Our media invoking more panic folks StableGenius
well, yeah, duh It's starting.... The Fake potus is about as smart as the billion dollar loser we know he is We are NOT in a booming economy. We are in a very fragile economy bubble created by Trump's deficit spending. Trump has increased the National debt by almost 25% in just two years, and this has created a false economy. Trump's bankrupt economy will tumble. TrumpsRecession
