The Milwaukee Company’s Economic Briefing Report is a weekly summary of economic indicators that have the potential of impacting stock and bond markets. Readings associated with a high level of risk for a number of the indicators listed below could suggest an elevated risk of a U.S. recession, and therefore a higher level of market risk. This Report is for informational purposes only and should not be regarded as a substitute for independent research and personalized investment advice.
Comments on this week’s report:
- Treasury yield spreads were mixed with the 10-year minus 2-year spread widening by 6 basis points to 0.21% and the 10-year minus 3-month dropping 5 basis points to 0.36%.
- Due to the government shutdown the scheduled economic data for this week has been postponed and thereby no changes were made in the report (other than treasury yield spreads).
