Below, check out the 2-, 5-,10-, 20-, and the 30-year Treasury yield to maturity. To see how the yields have changed, look at the different color lines. The 30-year yield hasn’t changed much from one year ago—moving from 1.7% to 1.8%. But on the short end, it has changed quite considerably, moving from 0.20% to roughly 0.70%.

All of these can be played with the Small Exchange yield products: /S2Y, /S10Y and /S30Y.
