Flat Yield Curve

Flat Yield Curve Definition

Flat Yield Curve is a yield curve in which there is little difference between short-term and long-term rates for bonds of the same credit rating. The yield curve itself is the relation between the interest rate and the time to maturity of the bond. The curve is flat when all maturities have similar yields. In this case there is little benefit in buying longer-term bonds, the investors are not compensated for the risk of holding longer-term securities. A flat curve sends signals of uncertainty in the economy.
