The 10-Year Treasury maturity minus the 2-Year Treasury maturity is a yield spread used to maintain a popular yield curve. The current yield spread was -0.45 as of March 24, 2023. A yield curve compares the yields on two distinct bonds and the width of the yield spread between the two helps economists and investors make predictions about the economy. A steeper yield curve often indicates stronger growth and higher inflation while a flat yield curve indicates weaker growth and lower rate of inflation.
