Inverted Yield Curve with VIX Fear Index

US 2 year and US 10 year comparison, inverted yield curve with VIX . I use this on a weekly chart with 2 moving averages, the 40 week (ma200 daily) and the 520 week (10 year median).

The bottom histogram is the VIX and the plot is the yield curve. When the VIX is above a certain level (you can set it in settings) and the ýield curve is close to or at inversion the background goes red.

The last seven recessions were preceded by an inverted yield curve. Here I combined the two main fear indexes, the VIX and the run for safe US treasuries (Inverted Yield Curve).

This is preset to the 2 year and 10 year US bond, weekly, and the normal VIX ticker but you can set it to whatever you like.
