intermarket carry trade

For intermarket carry trade, we implement receive fixed/pay floating in the steeper market and pay fixed/receive floating in the flatter market.

But why we do not receive fixed/pay floating in both the steeper market and flatter market as long as the yield curve is still upward sloping for the flatter market? I think, in this way, we can earn higher return because in both market we can invest at higher yield and borrow at lower yield.

With exam day right around the corner, Schweser's Final Review products are designed to help you finish out your study plan and walk into the testing center feeling prepared and confident.

Because you’re going duration neutral and currency neutral. You have to cancel the 6 month libor with the 6 month libor and the long with the long. If you don’t do that, you arent duration neutral and the problem had a constraint.

In your strategy we can definitely earn a higher return but we will not be currency neutral
