Yield Curve

Yield Curve A graph showing yield on the axis Y and period of maturity on the axis X, for fixed – income investments of the same kind, i.e., government bonds, debentures, or other loan instruments. These curves may be ascending, i.e., long – term securities yielding more than short – term securities or descending, i.e., short – term securities yielding more than long – term ones (in which case it is a negative yield curve), or flat, showing that both short – term and long – term yields are the same.
