Yield curve in the U.S. 2020

In the end of November 2020, the yield for a two-year U.S. Treasury bond was 0.16 percent, higher than the one month yield of 0.08 percent. Bonds of longer maturities generally have higher yields as a reward for the uncertainty about the condition of financial markets in the future. However, the yield curve inverted in March 2019 when long-term bonds had lower yields than short-term bonds, which has historically occurred before each of the last five U.S. recessions. This trend continued until the Federal Reserve cut interest rates several times throughout 2019.

Supplementary notes

End of month data.
The source adds the following information: "Yields are interpolated by the Treasury from the daily yield curve. This curve, which relates the yield on a security to its time to maturity is based on the closing market bid yields on actively traded Treasury securities in the over-the-counter market. These market yields are calculated from composites of indicative, bid-side market quotations (not actual transactions) obtained by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York at or near 3:30 PM each trading day. The CMT yield values are read from the yield curve at fixed maturities, currently 1, 2, 3 and 6 months and 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20, and 30 years."
