First, in so far as a general monetary easing will be reflected in a fall in short-term interest rates and hence a steepening of the yield curve, the term spread will be positively correlated with future movements in real activity brought about by the expansionary policy.

The index rises as the yield curve steepens, that is when year notes fall (and rates rise) in relation to 2-year notes. FLAT, tracking Author: Brad Zigler.

empirical literature has documented the excellent leading indicator properties of the slope of the yield curve, defined as the difference between long and short-term interest rates, for future economic activity.1, 2 While one might have expected a link between the real interest rate and future economicCited by: The LEI remains bullish on the outlook for real GDP even though one of its 10 components (the yield curve) has raised widespread concern. I remain bullish on the outlook for this expansion and for stocks. (For a handy table of US Business Cycle Expansions and Contractions: Present see Appendix in my new book.).

It is shown that the term structure embodies the market’s. The real return is simply the return an investor receives after the rate of inflation is taken into account. The math is straightforward: if a bond returns 4% in a given year and the current rate of inflation is 2%, then the real return is 2%.

Real Return = Nominal Return - Inflation. The same calculation can be used for a bond fund or any. The slope of the yield curve tells us how the bond market expects short-term interest rates (as a reflection of economic activity and future levels of inflation) to move in the future.
