Abstract

Interest rates have a considerable bearing on share prices. Any investor’s experience shows that, in general, when interest rates fall significantly, share prices rise, and vice-versa. We begin by observing the evolution of interest rates in the last 22 years in the United States. We also look at changes in the yield curve.
