Treasury yield curve from the Volcker era through Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen.

require(YieldCurve) data(FedYieldCurve) maturities <- c(3/12,6/12,1,2,3,5,7,10) howmany=NROW(FedYieldCurve) require(animation) saveGIF({ for (i in 1:howmany) { plot(maturities, FedYieldCurve[i,], type="o",lwd=3, col="#333333", xlab="Maturities structure in years", ylab="Interest rates values",ylim=c(0,15) ) title(main=paste("Federal Reserve yield curve observed at", time(FedYieldCurve[i]))) grid() } },interval=.05,movie.name="yield curve evolution.gif", ani.width=300,ani.height=300)

.
