# Parallel and Non-parallel Shifts in Yield Curve

## Parallel Shift

Rates across the maturity spectrum change by a constant amount and the slope of the yield curve remains consistent.

## Non-Parallel Shifts

**Twist:**The slope of the yield curve becomes flatter (the spread between short and long term yields narrows) or steeper (the spread between short and long term yields widens).

**Butterfly:**Change to the curvature of the yield curve.`**Positive butterfly:** The yield curve goes loses some of its "hump" and becomes straighter. **Negative butterfly:** The yield curve takes on more of a hump and ceases to look similar to a straight line.`
