In this lecture, we introduce the yield curve, which lies at the base of most cashflow trading. We explain liquidity preference theory, which determines the typical ‘standard’ shape of the yield curve, and how risk and reward, measured by credit risk and opportunity risk, create the standard yield curve.

It must be noted, however, that the yield curve can be many different shapes and you should never rely upon it always staying in this standard formation.

The next lecture will cover the inverted yield curve, the other major yield curve shape.
