The Dynamic Yield Curve tool shows the relationship between multiple interest rates and stocks over time.
The “yield curve” is a line that connects the different yield values for several interest rates of different duration. Under normal conditions, as the bond duration increases (the x-axis), the interest rate for that bond should also increase (y-axis), leading to a yield curve that moves higher as you go from left to right on the chart.
Under certain economic conditions, the direction of the yield curve can change and become flat or even inverted, warning investors to be cautious. Our Dynamic Yield Curve tool allows you to see the current yield curve at a glance and explore historical yield curves to see how things behave during different market conditions.
You can find a link to the Dynamic Yield Curve tool in the “Charting Tools” section of the Free Charts page, and in the “Control Center” area of the Members Dashboard (or just click here).
