To infinity … and beyond! For the 3-month Libor, that is.

The 3-month Libor rate is zooming upwards and has now exceeeded the 2-year Treasury Note yield.


Has this happended before? Yes.

The inversion (where a short-term rate or yield exceeds the longer-term rate or yield) has occurred before: both leading up to the 2001 recession and the Great Recession, and then a small inversion during Q1 2012.
