You can still just about feel the investor panic through your computer monitor now that the yield curve has inverted.
It's true: Short-term rates are higher than long-term rates right now.
But that's not the worry. The big problem is that much of what's being plastered all over television and the Internet about this is flat-out wrong.
And that is potentially dangerous for your money.
Here's the thing: The relationship between short-term interest rates has changed over time, and for that matter, it continues to change.
Just as anybody who spends all their drive time looking in the rearview mirror is liable to run head-on into a telephone pole, investors who don't adapt to these changes risk losing out on the superior returns these conditions make possible.
