As you can see in the graphic, the curve was upward sloping at each of the 3 dates shown. Compared to a year ago and a month ago, Treasury yields were little changed for bills, (anchored by Federal Reserve policy) but fell sharply for notes and bonds.
Typically, an upward sloping yield curve presages an expanding economy because it is usually associated with an aggressive Fed policy. Unfortunately, this hasn't been the case recently for the simple reason that, coming out of 2008, we didn't have so much a liquidity problem as a solvency problem. Historically, liquidity problems have been solved by the Fed increasing the money supply and banks making loans with the resulting excess reserves. Today, excess reserves are at record levels; but banks are still loaded with bad debts and are only cautiously beginning to lend.
The Treasury Yield Curve is a useful tool for quickly grasping the movement in rates over time. If you are interested in looking at historical yield curves, go to Living Yield Curve. Here you'll find periods where the curve was inverted, i.e., the yield on shorter maturities exceeded the rate on longer maturities. These were times when the Fed was following a tight monetary policy and usually resulted in a slower economy.
