Nonparallel Shift in the Yield Curve
A change in the yield curve for bonds with different maturities in which the changes in yields do not occur evenly. For example, given a yield curve for bonds with one-year, five-year, and 10-year maturities, the yield for the one-year bond may increase 10 basis points, the five-year may stay the same, and the 10-year may decrease 20 basis points.
