Treasury Yield Curve

A representation on a chart of the yields on U.S. Treasury securities with different maturities. On the yield curve, the maturities are represented on the x-axis, and the yield is represented on the y-axis. If the yield curve trends upward, it indicates that interest rates for long-term Treasurys are higher than short-term Treasurys; this is called a normal yield curve. A negative yield curve indicates that interest rates for short-term Treasurys are higher, and a flat yield curve indicates that they are roughly the same. The Treasury yield curve is used to predict future trends in interest rates and inflation.
