Treasury yield curve


A graphical representation of the yield on U.S. Treasuries for different maturities. In most cases, the slope of the Treasury yield curve is positive. The Treasury yield curve and the LIBOR curve are the two most commonly used proxies for the risk-free return of a bond. The Treasury yield curve tends to be less steep than the LIBOR curve.
