ARE INVESTORS MAKING TOO BIG OF A DEAL ABOUT A RECESSION WARNING FROM THE BOND MARKET? 
  
YES and No.  
 
I'm talking about an "inverted yield curve", which is throwing off an early warning about a pending recession over the next one to two years. It's the main reason why the DOW plunged 799 points on Tuesday. 
 
But, by no means would I use this signal as a retirement planning or market timing tool. The fact is, recessions and bear markets are a normal part of life for investors. That realization is already built into my clients' portfolios. That's why when many are within 10 years of their expected retirement, we're already dialing down their stock market exposure. 
 
But what about those who are in their 20's to their mid-50's? Bring it on baby! A bear market would be your friend because you're still accumulating stocks in your 401(k) and other accounts.  
 
This brings us back to basic investment objectives; which means investing according to your unique risk tolerance, financial goals, and time horizon. Don't let an inverted yield curve scare you. Instead, use it now - ahead of any recession - to take a reasonable look at your own unique investment objectives and if necessary, reconfigure your portfolio to make it congruent with your objectives.  
 
I write this article today for CNBC, which explains in plain English what an inverted yield curve is and what it means to you.
