Treasury Rate Movements, September 2018

Oct 2, 2018
US treasury rates by maturity

All rates rose in September.  The yield curve remained the same as the previous month thus ending its narrowing streak at four-months.  The one-month bill maintained the lowest rate throughout the month.  All rates rose at a somewhat similar pace to each other keeping the risk of an inversion brought upon by rising short-term rates at the same level as the previous month.  Such an inversion, if it were to happen would be a strong indicator for an upcoming recession.
