What Is an Inverted Yield Curve? Why Is It A Big Deal For Stocks?
The Yield Curve refers to the term structure of US government debt. Term structure simply refers to the rates of bonds of similar or the same quality across different maturities, either in a table or a graph. Since the risk-free rate (or what you could earn on your money without taking risk) is a vital component of many valuation methods, the proxy for this rate is incredibly important for financial markets. Since US government debt is considered the world's safest asset, various maturities of US debt assume this vital function for many different types of valuation models for both equities and derivatives.
