I’ve been creating a graphic representation of the Canadian government bond yield curve almost each week since December 29, 2015. And I’ve uploaded a copy to this website, so I thought it would be interesting to create an animation that shows the progression of the yield curve over time. Especially since the Bank of Canada raised interest rates recently.

The good news is that the technology works and I was able to create the animation. I may have missed a couple weeks, but I have 77 images for the period from December 29, 2015 to September 17, 2017 (meaning I may have missed 11 weeks, but I don’t think they’re clumped, so it shouldn’t affect the result much).

The bad news is that it’s far less (visually) interesting than I expected. Here it is for your enlightenment:
