Yield curve

Depicts the relationship between a bond´s maturity and its yield. The yield curve usually refers to this relation for government bonds (gilts). Whilst the curve is often sloping upwards (i.e. higher yields for longer maturities), it is not unusual to observe other shapes (inverted, U-shaped, etc...).
