Treasury Rate Movements, June 2018

Jul 13, 2018
US treasury rates by maturity

The 30-year rate was the only one to drop in June while the three-month and the 20-year rates remained steady and all other rates rose.  The yield curve narrowed from the previous month and extended its narrowing streak to two-months.  The one-month bill maintained the lowest rate throughout the month.  Although short-term rates rose, they did not rise as rapidly as the 30-year dropped and thus the yield curve narrowed mostly from the top decreasing 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.
