The U.S. Treasury Bond market is the largest and deepest government debt market in the world. Individual U.S. Treasury Notes and Bonds provide important benchmark yields at various points along the yield curve.
Trading the slope of the U.S. Treasury curve using futures contracts involves the execution of an inter-commodity spread. One very common and widely quoted yield curve spread is the twos versus tens yield spread. This spread compares and reflects the difference in yields between the current U.S. Treasury 10-Year note and the current U.S. Treasury 2-Year note.
