Negative Sloping Yield Curve

A yield curve is a graph that plots the various yields (usually government bonds) beginning with short term rates on the left side of the graph and extending towards long term rates to the right. Negative sloping refers to the fact that on such a curve short term rates are actually higher than long term rates. This is contrary to normal yield curves as dictated by the time value of money.
