Yield Curve 101

[By GREGOR AISCH and AMANDA COX]

The yield curve shows how much it costs the federal government to borrow money for a given amount of time, revealing the relationship between long- and short-term interest rates.

It is, inherently, a forecast for what the economy holds in the future — how much inflation there will be, for example, and how healthy growth will be over the years ahead — all embodied in the price of money today, tomorrow and many years from now.

  1. Whither the Bear?

    As a doctor, your action plan in a future bear market depends on many variables, with perhaps your age being the most important:

    In your 30s:
    • Pay off debts, school or practice loans.
    • Invest in safe money market mutual funds, cash or CDs.
    • Start retirement plan or 401-K account.

    In your 40s:
    • Increase your pension plan or 401-K contributions.
    • Stay weighted more toward equity investments.
    • Review your goals, risk tolerance and portfolio.

    In your 50s:
    • Position assets for ready cash instruments.
    • Diversify into stock, bonds and cash.

    Retirement:
    • Maintain 3 years of ready cash living expenses.
    • Reduce, but still maintain your exposure to equities.
