US Recession Odds Hit 55% According to Deutsche Bank Model

A Deutsche Bank yield curve model says the odds of a US recession are now 55%. Specifically, the model notes the flattening of the yield curve, something I have mentioned numerous times recently.

Bloomberg reports U.S. Recession Odds Climb to 55% as Yield Curve Flattens.


Recession Odds

Flattening Yield Curve Signals Recession

"What are plummeting interest rates saying about the outlook for the economy? The spread between the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury notes and two-year notes is the narrowest since 2007. A model maintained by Deutsche Bank analyst Steven Zeng, who adjusts the spread for historically low short-term interest rates, suggests the yield curve is now signaling a 55 percent chance of a U.S. recession within the next 12 months."


Yield Curve Flattens Again

On June 10, I noted Yield Curve Flattens Again: 30-Yr Yield Just 19 Basis Points From Record Low

The chart has not changed much since then.

Recovery Increasingly in Question

  • The 30-year long bond is just 19 basis points from the low set in January of 2015.
  • The 10-year note is just 20 basis points from the low set in July of 2012.
