Treasury Yield Curve

10-Year Treasury Chart (5-14-09)

Clusterstlock’s Joe Weisenthal’s takes a historical look on 10-year Treasury yields going back to 1962. As you can see, the yield is still below 1962 levels, despite the massive inflationary steps the Federal Reserve and Treasury have taken over the last 18 months (6-26-09 yield was 3.51%). These trends can also be put into perspective by reading Vincent Fernando’s post at Take a peek.

Ways to take advantage of this trend include purchases of TBT (UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury ProShares) or short TLT (iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond)*.
