Inflation is a chief concern at EuroPac, just as the economy is headed back to a 2008 style Great Recession, which could result in Stagflation
Stagflation has positive implications for the PMs sector, as illustrated by the 1970's gold bull market, case study.
As 2 year / 10 year Treasury note yields invert, perhaps as soon as early 2019, 90% of the time this event coincides with a recession / stock market correction.

Officials are advised to proceed cautiously with the current trade tariffs to avoid crushing global economic contraction, collapsing global trade and widespread unemployment.
