US Treasury Bond Rates ChartThis chart shows the 30 Day Treasury Bill, 3 Month Treasury Bill, 10 Year Treasury Note, and 30 Year Treasury Bond, with Yield Curve, 3 Month CD's, and CPI, in relation to the S&P 500. Treasury Bills, Notes, and Bonds (aka T-Bills, T-Notes, T-Bonds) are safe, competitive investments vis-a-vis the stock market. A comparison of Treasury Rates versus the E-to-P (E/P, inverse of the Price-to-Earnings, P/E ratio) is a popular method for predicting the forthcoming trend, or flow of funds. Under this framework, high US Treasury bonds rates are bearish for the stock market, and low rates are bullish.
