Treasury Rate Movements, September 2021

Oct 13, 2021
US treasury rates by maturity

The six-month rate fell, the three-month rate stayed the same, while all other rates rose in September.  The yield curve widened from the previous month thus extending its widening streak to two months.  The one-month bill did not maintain the lowest rate throughout the month and it shared the lowest rate on multiple occasions.  There were moves upwards on short-term rates thus 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.
