Viewing Yield Curves
Yield curves are constructed and stored in the database as ranges of maturities for which a single cubic equation (y = a + bx + cx^{2} + dx^{3}) describes the yield curve through those maturities. A complete yield curve for maturities from zero through thirty years or longer is typically made up of a few of these equations, each describing a segment of the curve. You can use the equations making up the complete curve in a spreadsheet for graphing purposes. Individual forward rates can be calculated online by using this page.

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the View Yield Curves page. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.
To view yield curves, enter a value in the Maturity field. Enter a data in theMaturity Dt field. Today's date is the default. Click theCalculate button next to theMaturity field. The rate appears in theRate field.
