The financial press frequently suggest that the shape of yield curve reflects information about the prospects of the economy. This paper attempts to formalize the link between the yield curve and the real economic activity. A closed-form formula for the term structure of interest rates is derived.

It is shown that the term structure embodies the market’s. The real return is simply the return an investor receives after the rate of inflation is taken into account. The math is straightforward: if a bond returns 4% in a given year and the current rate of inflation is 2%, then the real return is 2%.

Real Return = Nominal Return - Inflation. The same calculation can be used for a bond fund or any. The slope of the yield curve tells us yield curve and real activity book the bond market expects short-term interest rates (as a reflection of economic activity and future levels of inflation) to move in the future.

The spread remains robustly positive, with the year rate at percent and the 3-month rate at percent (both for the week ending October 12).Author: Joseph G. Haubrich, Katie Corcoran. Yield curves are usually upward sloping asymptotically: the longer the maturity, the higher the yield, with diminishing marginal increases (that is, as one moves to the right, the curve flattens out).

The index rises as the yield curve steepens, that is when year notes fall (and rates rise) in relation to 2-year notes. FLAT, tracking Author: Brad Zigler.

Along the x-axis of a yield-to-maturity graph, we see the time to maturity for the associated bonds, and along the y-axis of the yield-to-maturity graph, we see the yield to maturity for the associated bonds. entire yield curve. Diebold, Rudebusch, and Aruoba () examine the cor-relations between Nelson-Siegel yield factors and macroeconomic variables.

While, they –nd that the level factor is highly correlated with in⁄ation, and the slope factor is highly correlated with real activity, the curvature factorCited by: 2. In other words, a financial uncertainty shock causes a temporary steepening of the yield curve.

This result is consistent, among other interpretations, with medium-term expectations of a recovery in real activity after a financial uncertainty shock. Why Does the Yield-Curve Slope Predict Recessions?

The yield curve is a wonderful predictor of future recessions. In fact, it’s predicted all 7 of the last recessions in the USA. In a general sense this is a signal that there’s a disconnect between what Central Banks believe and what bond markets believe.
