Treasury Rate Movements, October 2019

Nov 4, 2019
US treasury rates by maturity

All bill and note rates fell except for the ten-year note which along with all bond rates rose in October.  The yield curve widened from the previous month thus ending its narrowing streak at three months.  The one-month bill did not maintain the lowest rate at any point in the month.  Long-term rates rose while short-term rates dropped thus decreasing the risk of an inversion brought upon by rising short-term rates.  Such an inversion is a strong indicator for an upcoming recession.
