Yield curve introduction
This often indicates interest rates are expected to rise and then fall.
Humped yield curve
And I always start to jumble things when I run out of time. The longer investors are willing to borrow long term, the lower the chances of having those rates go up and lower the demand for borrowing at a higher rate in the short term. Well, when the treasury, the government, needs to borrow money, what it does is say, hey everyone we need to borrow a billion dollars from you, because we can't control are spending. And you have some intuition on why the yield curve has this shape. So in general, you expect less interest when you loan money for a shorter period time than a longer period of time. They say, if you lend money to the government for one month, you'll get 1. The main types of yield curves are: Normal positive yield curve Where long-term investments have higher yields than shortterm ones. And similarly, the government does auctions for all of the different durations. A flat yield curve often precedes a change from a positive to an inverted yield curve or vice versa. So you saw where I got my data.
Three months I get about the same thing. These are loans to the federal government. Corporate bankruptcy Video transcript Welcome back.
Yield curve introduction
So this is one month. And then when you go beyond 10 years, these are called treasury bonds. And similarly, the government does auctions for all of the different durations. So with that out of the way, let's talk about what the yield curve is. Positive Butterfly: When the butterfly lessens its curvature and becomes flatter. One would obviously prefer borrowing long term as they lock in a lower rate for longer indicates that the general equation of risk between long and short rates is topsy-turvy. It is also important to note that the demand and supply of bonds are also based upon yields i. Maybe that's like here. So maybe that's here. In some circumstances, a positive yield curve may be very steep. And I'm going to plot this.
The evolution could be different in times in which growth will be above potential in a sustainable way. Maybe it's here. The role of the balance sheet as a tool of monetary policy means that size and composition of central banks balance sheets will affect yield level through the size effect and the shape of the yield curve through the composition effect.
And the world, investors from everywhere, they go in, they say, well, this is a safe place to put my cash for a month. Imagine if the long rates and short rates are almost the same or that the long rates are lower than the short rates. But the yield premium that a long term bond commands should increase to make the curve upward slope soon.
What is a yield curve? And they say we're going to borrow a billion dollars in one month notes.
And these are considered risk-free.
