Treasury Rate Movements, May 2018

Jun 5, 2018
US treasury rates by maturity

Short-term rates rose in May while medium and long-term rates dropped.  The yield curve narrowed from the previous month and broke its one-month widening streak.  The one-month bill maintained the lowest rate throughout the month.  As the one-month rate had the largest increase in both absolute and relative terms, the yield curve narrowed from the bottom increasing the risk of an inversion brought upon by rising short-term rates.  Such an inversion, if it were to happen would be a strong indicator for an upcoming recession.
