French term or phrase: coût d'une position au flattening sur ce segment
Après une légère correction en tout début d'année, la courbe obligataire EUR
a repris sa tendance à l'aplatissement, et le mouvement est particulièrement
sensible sur la partie longue. En moins d'une semaine, le spread 10/30 ans
swap s'est resserré de 7pb, *alors que le coût d'une position au flattening
sur ce segment* n'était que légèrement supérieur à 0.8pb par mois.

Wat wordt met "position au flattening".

Alvast bedankt en een prettig weekend gewenst.

hetzelfde als aplatissement? afvlakken
Explanation:
Flat
1. A price that is neither rising nor declining.

2. In forex, the condition of being neither long nor short in a particular currency. Also referred to as 'being square'.

3. A bond that is trading without accrued interest.

Notes:
1. If a stock over the last month has been trading around $30, it can be thought of as trading flat.

2. If you had no positions in the U.S. dollar or your long and short positions canceled each other out, you would be flat or have a flat book.

3. A bond is trading flat if the buyer of the bond is not responsible for paying the interest that has accrued since the last payment (accrued interest is usually part of the bond purchase price). Bonds that are in default trade flat.
