Us Treasury Sells Negative-Rate Bonds

Recommended Posts

"Investors ... accepted a yield of minus 0.55 per cent". I am happy to double that and am prepared to offer a yield of -1%. So if you give me 100 quid today then I'll give you 99 quid in a year's time?

That means you are also committing to compensating us for any inflation that may occur in the next 10 years. Still interested?

Nah, I only offer negative yield investments. :lol:

The investors in TIPS must be pretty sure of inflation being on the way...

That's what I thought :) And if non inflation protected bonds went negative then yes, that would be something.

But with TIPS, unless you're the guy with the printer, it's a pretty big gamble.

So these are linked to inflation?
