Analysing & Interpreting The Yield Curve (359 pages, $79.95 hardcover, 2004, ISBN 0470821256) by
Moorad Choudhry, published by John Wiley
& Sons. The yield curve is the defining indicator
of the global debt capital markets, and understanding
it is vital to the smooth running of the economy. All participants in the market, whether they are issuers of capital, investors, or banking intermediaries, have a need to estimate, interpret, and understand the yield curve. Fund managers who accurately predict the shape and direction of the curve will consistently outperform those who do not. This book offers an intuitive account of a technical subject, market approaches to enable evaluation of the current and expected shape of the curve, and an opportunity
to understand the latest analytical techniques.
It is a clear account of the topic written by an experienced practitioner.
