6:15 am
yield curve. you've been avoiding it. give me 30 seconds. a ten-year treasury note will have a high yield. high profit. the graph will look something like this. it's going to be up here, it will move back and forth a bit. the graph over time might look like that. it has to be a high payoff, you're lending money for a long time. two-year note will pay less. this makes sense. you spend a lot of money or you put a lot to of money aside, you get a high payoff, less, lower amount of time, less payoff. enough people rush into the long bond, like the ten year. the yield, the payoff will go down naturally. is it the inverted yield curve that causes the freakout or is
