**economyst**, Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 1:19pmI would say, "cant tell" The market could expect interest rate 2 years from now to be 6.0%. However, seeing two years in the future is more risky than 1 year. So, the higher yield in year 2 could easily be explained by the higher risk. Ditto for 3+ years.
