Question
a "flat" short-term yield curve - in our example, the 3-month and 6-month rates are the same at 10.0% - does it imply that the market expects interest rates to remain stable?
Answer
No, it implies the market expects rates to fall (geometric average, reinvestment; also rate compounded twice has to be smaller than equivalent non-compounded rate over the same period). In other words, 6 month is equivalent to 3 months from now (known) and next 3 months unknown. for this compounding to work out to 10%, next 3 months (unknown) must be lower than 10%.
