Yield Curve

I was going to post this as a reply in another thread, but I thought this might make for an interesting discussion.

Here's a nice java (and animated!) treasury yield curve:

I believe that inverted yield curves have preceded every recession, so did anyone pull assets out of the market in 2000 when the curve became inverted, or did the lure of the 'new economy' keep you in?

Re: Yield Curve

Heck, I was busy buying unloved and overlooked old-fashioned companies (the ones with actual profits) in '99 and '00. One of my best buys was shares of a thrift thet was absolutely tossed out by the market.
