    why does the yield curve move?

    but that doesnt make sense to me though. usually they say its a predictor of recession right an inverted yield curve. however if the bonds yield goes down cause there are huge amount of buyers, thus sending 30yr treasury bonds alot lower. why would people want to own 30yr old bonds when the...
