    Abstract

    The question of how do the monetary policy translate across the yield curve remain at the forefront of many recent policy debates. The monetary policy targets the very short end of the yield curve although real economic activity is largely dependent upon the medium to long- term market interest rates. Conventional wisdom agree that given efficient market conditions decrease in the monetary policy target rate leads to an immediate decrease in market interest rates, and an increase in bond prices; yet evidence for this view is elusive. Bringing the foundations of Expectation Hypothesis (EH) and empirical analysis of US money market and government bond daily yield rates for the period 2000 to 2009 explains that monetary policy impact monotonically decreases over the yield curve. The impact appears to be waning at a faster pace and concentrate on a preferred habitat towards shorter end at times of financial and economic uncertainties compared against stable economic period. This invites policy attention, especially at times of economic uncertainty, on the part of monetary policy effectiveness and market confidence in US to resurrect economic activities.
