In the securities market, the yield curve is the graphic representation of the different yields of short-term, midterm and long-term U.S. Treasury notes. The 1-year T-Bill would have lower yields than the long-term 30-year T-Bonds. When a line is drawn from the yields of the 1-year T-Bill, through the medium-term notes, to the 30-year T-Bond's yield, the line is usually an ascending curve. In rare occasions, however, an inverted yield curve may arise. For more information, see the "Interest Rates" article in the "Mortgage Industry" section.
