The one, three, five, and seven-year rates fell while the one and six-month and the two, 20, and 30-year rates remained the same, and the three-month and ten-year rates rose in June.  The yield curve remained unchanged from the previous month thus ending its widening streak of one month.  The one-month bill maintained the lowest rate throughout the month.  There were no drastic moves upwards on short-term rates thus 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.
