China’s Yield Curve Inverts (Small Beans Relative to Venezuela’s Curve Inversion And 2,713% Inflation Rate)

Inverted sovereign yield curves are generally bad news. And China’s inverted yield curve is no different. The 5Y to 10Y segment of China’s sovereign curve has inverted … again.


But before anyone gets hysterical, the rest of China’s sovereign curve is upward sloping like the USA (blue for China, green for the USA).


For comparison sake, I am including the mac-daddy of curve inversion: Venezuela (red line). Their 3Y sovereign yield is a gut-wrenching 58% while their 20Y yield is lower at 22%. And their 2,712.88% annual inflation rate.
