  • Evidence is mounting that the stock market could plunge into chaos this summer

    After spiking to a multi-year high in February, the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) has stabilized as investor nerves have calmed.

This can be seen in the spot price for the Cboe...

  • How the flattening yield curve could lead to a bear market for stocks

    REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton The yield curve is the spread between the yield on the 10-year treasury and the 2-year treasury. Its movements have historically been used as a recession indicator in the US.
