Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A., May Recover Investor Losses – Do you have losses in Bull Steepeners?
According to Investopedia a Bull Steepener is a change in the yield curve caused by short-term interest rates falling faster than long-term rates, resulting in a higher spread between the two rates. A bull steepener occurs when the Fed Reserve is expected to lower interest rates.
A steepener is a type of complex, structured investment product. Essentially, a steepener is an interest rate swap. With a steepener trade, one party (investor) agrees to pay a counterparty a fixed rate in exchange for a floating rate.
Essenially, the investor is making a bet on the shape of the yield curve. If there is a large difference between long-term interest rates and short-term interest rates, there is a very “steep” yield curve.
