According to one of the best predictors we have, the next recession could start as early as November 2020.
You've likely heard all about the "yield curve" in the financial media. In fact, we've talked a lot about a yield curve inversion here at Money Morning. In short, an inverted yield curve is when the 10-year Treasury yield falls below the two-year Treasury yield, and it's one of the best predictors of a recession we have.
In a healthy economy, the 10-year yield should always be higher since investors have to wait longer for it to mature. That's why it's a very bad sign when the 10-year yield drops below the two-year yield.
A recession has followed every time that's happened.
You Must Act Now: America is headed for an economic disaster bigger than anything since the Great Depression. If you lost out when the markets crashed in 2008, then you are going to want to see this special presentation...
But while you know a recession has followed every yield curve inversion, you might not know how long it takes to happen.
And since that could happen soon, we wanted to make sure you knew exactly what to expect...
Here's When a Recession Starts

The yield curve could invert any day now.
The current two-year yield is 2.5%, while the 10-year yield is 2.66%. A minuscule drop of 0.17% in the 10-year yield would invert the curve. That's more than plausible since yields on the 10-year are down 0.28% over the last year.
If the Fed hikes rates again or unloads its balance sheet quicker than expected, the yield could drop even faster.
But an inversion doesn't mean a recession will start right away.
Bloomberg found it takes an average of 627 days from inversion to recession. That means if the yield curve inverts this month - a distinct possibility - the next recession could start in November 2020.
Take a look...
Knowing this could give you a leg up on the market too. It's very likely a stock sell-off will follow a yield curve inversion, but you'll know the real trouble is most likely to hit nearly two years later.
While the next recession could be even worse than the 2008 financial crisis, you'll have time to take advantage of Wall Street's overreactions.
And trading options gives you the ability to maximize your short-term returns as Wall Street panics.
Plus, you don't need to guess which stocks are going up or down as uncertainty rises. America's No. 1 Pattern Trader has developed a patent-pending method for spotting patterns in the stock market that could make you a fast fortune.
A Famous Wall Street Firm Paid This Guy $20 Million to Share His Secrets (but He Kept THIS ONE Under Wraps)
He never worked at a fancy investment bank. And he never graduated from college. In fact, he spent much of his career as a customer service rep at an Atlanta Home Depot.
But he became so good at beating the stock market's top traders, he was paid $20 million to divulge almost all of his secrets.
However, he kept his most powerful secret quiet. And today, live on camera, he's agreed to share it.
Watch him officially become $1,050 richer in 15 seconds! And then $940 richer in 11 seconds... $1,260 richer in eight seconds... and $988 richer in seven seconds!
Even better, you'll discover how you can do this all yourself. It's easy!
