Explaining Bond Prices and Bond Yields
​In this revision video we work through some numerical examples of the inverse relationship between the market price of fixed-interest government bonds and the yields on those bonds. ​Government bonds are fixed interest securities. This means that a bond pays a fixed annual interest – this is known as the coupon The coupon (paid in £s, $s, Euros etc.) is fixed but the yield on a bond will vary The yield is effectively the interest rate on a bond. The yield will vary inversely with the market price of a bond 1.When bond prices are rising, the yield will fall 2.When bond prices are falling, the yield will rise - - - - - - - - - MORE ABOUT TUTOR2U ECONOMICS: Visit tutor2u Economics for thousands of free study notes, videos, quizzes and more: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics A Level Economics Revision Flashcards: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/alevel-economics-revision-flashcards A Level Economics Example Top Grade Essays: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/exemplar-essays-for-a-level-economics

Bond yields reach dangerous levels in Europe
http://www.euronews.net/ November 17 signalled new fears for the euro, sowing seeds that soon might spread - of more unsustainable debts. Spain's ten-year bond yield reached a dangerous level, so that even France's borrowing rate rocked higher. On Thursday, what the euro zone's third and fourth-largest economies, Italy and Spain, paid on debt (6.8% and 6.6%, respectively) was more than three times Germany's rate (1.8%). France was (3.6%).

Wide of stock exchange foyer with ticker in background STORYLINE: Greek markets rallied on Friday and the largest union said it would hold off on further strikes amid widespread relief in the debt-plagued country over a cash support programme agreed by other euro countries. Shares on the Athens Stock Exchange jumped 2.98 percent in midday trading, while the spread between Greek 10-year bonds and equivalent German issues - a gauge of market confidence - dipped to 307 basis points from 330 points the day before. Athens won a major reprieve on Thursday - as Greece celebrated its Independence Day - when eurozone countries agreed to a financial rescue package, to be used only as a last resort, that includes the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is reportedly worth about 22 (b) billion euros - equal to about 29.4 (b) billion US dollars The European Central Bank also extended relaxed rules that keep downgraded Greek bonds eligible. Alexandros Moraitakis, President of the Association of Members of the Athens Stock Exchange, said on Friday that the markets were reacting very positively and that he expected the trend to continue. Greece needs to borrow some 54 billion euros - equivalent to 72.4 (b) billion US dollars - this year and roll over some 20 (b) billion euros -equivalent to 26.8 (b) billion US dollars in debt in April and May. It has been able to sell bonds but says it cannot keep paying the high interest rates investors have been demanding. The deal was a clear victory for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who demanded that aid only come as a last resort and must include the IMF. "I think that her role is very positive and very crucial," said Moraitakis. Greece shocked markets and other EU nations last year by admitting it had falsified statistics to make its budget deficit look lower. Its 12.7 percent deficit for 2009 is four times over the EU limit, showing up the eurozone''s inability to restrict members'' debt and deficits. Worries of a Greek default also highlighted the lack of a safety net for eurozone countries that can''t pay their bills.

The Significance of a 3%-Plus 10-Year Treasury Yield.
In this report the early market action from London on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018. I look at the precious metals, the stock market, the dollar and the bond markets. I also talk about how a break above the 3% yield level for the 10-year note U.S. treasury would mark the probable end of the 30-year plus environment of decreasing interest rates and easy money. I note that since 1981, when the 10-year yield topped near 16%, the U.S. economy and government have been able to take on an exponential amount of debt and credit because of a favorable interest rate environment. My conclusion is that we could be at the very beginning of the unwind of the massive debt bubble that has been built since the early 1980s.

Foreign bonds
Foreign bonds Although I suggest that you invest in a variety of bonds like US Treasuries, junk bonds and Ginnie Maes to achieve maximum returns at a minimum risk, I don't think there's much to be gained by investing in foreign bonds. Foreign bond markets may have appeal because foreign markets behave differently from the US bond market. While interest rates may be going up in the United States, they may be going down in Germany. Still, it's doubtful that you can make any extra money by investing overseas. Currency effects limit chance for gains from foreign bonds The reason for this is currency risk. If you invest overseas in foreign currency bonds, you may get higher yields, but you're also exposing yourself to currency losses. And over the long run, what you gain in higher foreign yields will be lost in currency devaluation. Let's look at an example. In the 1980s American bonds paid higher interest than comparable Japanese bonds. This is because America had higher inflation than Japan. So if you were a Japanese investor and had invested in American bonds, you would have had higher interest earnings. But, at the same time, you would have seen the value of your American bonds decrease dramatically in yen terms because the yen strengthened against the dollar during this time. The "Short-term global bond" fiasco of 1992 You would have seen a similar fate if you were an American investor who had invested in Italian or British bonds in 1992 when a lot of new short-term international bond funds were popping up. These funds promised higher yields than those available in the US, and they delivered on this promise for a short while. But then currency risk caught up with the funds. I was in Europe in the summer of 1992, and just from comparing Big Mac prices in Italy and Germany I could tell that the Italian lira was overpriced. The market obviously figured this out too, and traders expected the Italian government to devalue the currency. The Italian government, however, wanted to maintain the lira's standing in the European exchange rate mechanism, so it raised interest rates in Italy. Britain did the same thing. This, however, proved unsustainable and both governments had to devalue their currencies. So American investors who liked the high yields offered by Italian and British bonds faced losses in principal as their Italian and British bonds suffered currency losses relative to the dollar. What you gain in yield is surrendered in principal This provides a general rule for bond investors. Whatever you gain in yield you'll probably have to give up in principal losses. For example, whatever you gain in yield from junk bonds, you'll have to give up as a loss in principal -- at least for the most part. The same holds true for investing in higher yielding foreign bonds. Of course you can speculate on the direction of foreign bond markets and on foreign currencies by investing in foreign bonds. You might invest at the right time when the foreign bond market is rising and the foreign currency is also rising. But then again you might get caught in the wrong direction on both accounts. Over time, after translating your earnings back into US dollars, you'll probably do no better than if you had stayed in the US bond market. Investing in foreign bonds is a losing proposition In fact, however, you'll probably have done worse than if you had stayed in the US bond market because by going overseas, you subject yourself to higher costs. You'll also subject yourself to foreign taxes. Although you probably can get a credit on your US taxes for foreign taxes paid, why bother if going overseas doesn't get you much anyway? Hedging and investing in foreign bonds won't help Finally, don't think that you can earn excess returns by investing in overseas bonds and then eliminate currency risk by using hedges like currency futures or forwards. In an efficient market, if you invest in a foreign currency and then hedge your currency exposure, there is no way that you can earn more than if you had simply stayed in the United States. This is called the international Fisher effect, and it almost always holds. So I'd recommend that you not invest in foreign bonds, unless you like to speculate in foreign currencies - an extremely difficult task. However, I do advise that you invest in foreign stocks. Check out my tape on stock investing to find out why investing in foreign stocks is a better idea than investing in foreign bonds. Copyright 1997 by David Luhman

However, the ECB said it would continue with its bond buying program through March of 2017 and is ready to implement additional stimulus measures if they believe they are economically necessary. Weekly jobless claims remain on trend, rising 9,000 to 269,000 and staying within the same range of the past 21 weeks. Crude oil prices rise ahead of the OPEC meeting in Vienna, where Reuters reports that Saudi Arabia may try to convince the other OPEC nations to cut production of oil. Sears Holdings (SHLD) is still struggling. Sales at both Sears and Kmart stores were down in the quarter.

What is a Bond? | What are Bonds?
Scientific Wealth Manager https://en.samt.ag/user-registration What are Bonds? A bond is the most common type of fixed-income security, it is a debt instrument that makes a series of fixed interest payments regularly, and pays the principal amount on the maturity date. Entities such as governments and corporations issue bonds to finance various projects. At its core a bond is just a loan that investors make to the bond’s issuers. When the bond is first issued its value is basically the amount being loaned, called the face value of the bond. In exchange for this loan the investor gets regular interest, known as the coupon. Bonds are issued for a specified period. This duration can be a year, three years, five years, 30 years and above. When the bond matures, the issuer repays the loan to the investor. Then there are quasi-government entities. These entities are not under direct obligation of a central bank or the national governments. For instance, the Federal National Mortgage Association or Fannie Mae. Supranational entities operate globally. The European investment Bank, The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are some examples. Then there are bonds that do not have a maturity date called, perpetual bonds. They pay interest, but don't carry any promises of repaying the principal amount. The par value of a bond is a principal amount that is repaid to the investor at maturity. It is also known by other terms such as face value and redemption value. Par value is quoted as a percentage of par. For instance, a bond with a par value of $1000, quoted at 98, will be selling for $980. Some bonds pay annual coupons while there are those that pay semiannual, quarterly or monthly interest payments. A $1000 par value semiannual pay bond with 5% coupon will pay 2.5% of $1000 or $25 every six months. Please note that there are bonds whose coupon rate varies throughout their tenure. If a bond has a fixed coupon rate it's called plain-vanilla bond or conventional bond. There are special types of bonds that do not pay any coupon payment before maturity, called pure discount or zero-coupon bonds. Such bonds are sold at a discount to par value, hence the term pure discount. The interest accumulates till maturity, then it is repaid to the investor along with the par value. For instance, a 10 year $1000 zero-coupon bond with 7% yield would initially sell at around $500, and then it will pay $1000 to the bondholder at maturity. As there are different currencies, so are the bonds denominated in those currencies. A dual currency bond makes coupon payments in one currency and repays the principal in another. While a currency option bond gives the investor or the bondholder a choice to choose a pair of currencies in which they would like to receive payments. Bonds are subject to different regulations and legal requirements, which depend on factors such as their place of issue and the place where they are traded at. A bond issued by a firm domiciled in a country, and also traded in that country's currency is called a domestic bond. If a firm, incorporated in a foreign country, issues a bond that trades on the national bond market of another country in that country's currency is called a foreign bond. For instance, if a foreign firm issues bonds denominated in yuan (yoo-an) that trade in China, are foreign bonds, and are known as panda bonds. Similarly, if a firm is incorporated outside of the United States and issues a bond denominated in US dollar and trades in the United States it’s also a foreign bond, known as a Yankee bond. Euro bonds are issued outside the jurisdiction of any one country, and denominated in a currency different from the currency of the countries in which these are sold. Initially, Eurobonds were created to avoid US regulations. These bonds should not be confused with bonds denominated in euro currency or domiciled in Europe, although they can be both. An example of a Eurobond would be a bond issued by a Chinese firm denominated in the Japanese yen and traded in markets outside of Japan. Global bonds are sold inside as well as outside the country in whose currency they are denominated. For instance, a dollar global bond will trade in New York which will be its domestic bond market as well as in Tokyo which will be its Eurobond market. Euro bonds are known by the currency they are denominated in for instance a Eurobond denominated in US dollar is called a Eurodollar bond, similarly a euro yen bond is denominated in yen. Most euro bonds are issued in bearer form, which means that their ownership is evidenced simply by the possession of the bonds. In registered bonds however, the ownership is recorded. Hence, bearer bonds are more popular among folks looking to avoid taxes.
What are Eurobonds? (And How To Invest In Them)
In this video I explain what a a EUROBOND is and how you can invest in one. A BOND is a fixed income investment in which an investor loans money to an entity (typically corporate or governmental) which borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a variable or fixed interest rate. A EUROBOND is a special type of bond issued in a currency which is different from the currency of the country or the market in which the bond is issued.

MMT: Sovereign Currency Governments Should Stop Selling Bonds
Professor L. Randall Wray discussing how bond sales work with a currency-issuing government with a floating exchange rate. Because the government can issue currency (and indeed must every time it spends) there is no need to issue debt in order to spend. What the debt accomplishes is to remove the excess reserves in the banking system that are created by government deficits (government spending creates reserves, taxes destroy reserves), which raises the interest rate. With excess reserves in the system, banks are not able to get rid of them through lending, so overnight interest rates will fall to zero. Selling bonds drains the excess reserves, causing interest rates to rise above zero. So, the currency issuing government (with a floating exchange rate) doesn't need to sell bonds, and can control the interest rate. The position held by most adherents of Modern Money Theory is that the government should just stop selling bonds, and let interest rates fall to zero as the excess reserves accumulated. Part of the reason is that adjusting the interest rate is ineffective as a tool to stabilize the economy (see more on that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E464oOQ6Tw&list=PLZJAgo9FgHWaMs-WzbMAUw91u5pjGaR59&index=10) and also partly because keeping the interest rates above zero is a subsidy for the top 1%. Since most of the government bonds are held by the wealthy, and most of the lending in the economy is done by the wealthy, the government keeping interest rates above zero enriches the already-wealthy. Selling bonds is completely necessary on a fixed exchange rate, in order to lock up your excess currency to minimize your citizens' demands to convert to the reserve currency. But on a floating exchange rate, this is not a problem, because the government doesn't need to hold on to the foreign currency, because they have no peg to maintain.

Economists said that trend is likely to continue until European leaders make progress on tackling the region's debt crisis. The major credit rating agencies -- Moody's, Fitch and Standard & Poor's -- each cut Spain's credit rating this month.

Euro Denominated Bonds
http://www.ForexConspiracyReport.com - Euro Denominated Bonds Is now the time to invest in Euro denominated bonds? Interest rates are high in countries like Italy due to the Euro debt crisis. If all of this gets resolved successfully interest rates will likely drop. Those holding Euro denominated bonds paying 7% interest will see a windfall. Couple the benefits of falling interest rates on Euro denominated bonds with a rebounding Euro and the profits are further enhanced. To profit from a resolution of the European sovereign debt dilemma will take timing and, perhaps, patience. To profit from anticipation of the fix to debt problem will require attention to Forex fundamentals as well as technical analysis of price patterns. The background to this situation is that a number of nations in the European Union developed severe budget deficits after the 2008 market crash and onset of the worst recession in 75 years. The so called PIIGS group (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain) has required financial support from the European Community in general and from the International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank in particular. In return the bankers and other lenders have demanded austerity measures in order to reduce national budgets. This has led the fall of governments in Greece and Italy with veteran politicians being replaced with leaders likely to control spending. Because lenders require higher interest rates for risky situations they have bid up interest rates on Euro denominated bonds in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and elsewhere. Anyone not in the EU has had to use the Forex market to change US dollars, Yen, British Pounds, or other currencies into Euro in order to purchase these bonds. After a painful year or two of chaotic markets and mental anguish it appears that EU leaders are finally getting their act together. In a recent financial summit, leaders agreed to EU treaty changes that will further integrate finances across the board in the EU. The intent is to reduce the ability of local politicians to win votes by spending money that they do not have. The profit in this situation is that the Euro has taken its hits over the last couple of years and will likely rebound strongly when a winning system is in place. At the same time lenders will be willing to accept lower rates for Greek, Italian, and other Euro denominated bonds. The market value of a bond is determined by calculating the total of payments remaining and comparing to payments available for bonds issued at the current interest rate. When interest rates fall prices of old bonds go up. Thus Euro denominated bonds issued with a 7% interest rate will be substantially more valuable if interest rates fall to 6, 5, or 4 %. Couple that with the fact that the Euro has varied in trading by a factor of two against other major currencies over the last decade. In order to profit from investing in, and selling, Euro denominated bonds, currency traders need to pick the most opportune time to enter the Forex market and the most opportune time to purchase bonds. Then, when the European situation improves, the investor will need to pick the right time to sell his Euro denominated bonds and convert his now-highly-priced Euros back into Yen, US dollars, or British Pounds.

European Bonds: Draghi's Doves Keep a Lid on Yields... For Now
Now that political risks have receded in the Eurozone, bond markets are turning to fundamentals. The recent news flow suggests that the reflation process keeps advancing in the monetary union. Macro data points to firmer growth though the credit recovery continues to look hesitant. Progress seems slower on the inflation front. We believe that the uptick in core inflation seen in April will prove transitory and that the inflation outlook hardly improved. Noteworthy, the European Commission’s latest forecasts show inflation falling back to 1.3% next year. Market measures of expected inflation, the so-called Breakevens, eased as well. How and when will the ECB adjust its policy? The question is critical for bond markets under the influence of massive quantitative easing. According to a widely shared view, the ECB would toughen its wording in June and announce in September the tapering of its QE program over 2 thousand eighteen at a pace of 5 billion per month. This scenario looks plausible. Central banks are not at ease with the unorthodox easing implemented and seem anxious to normalize policy. However, we believe that the odds of the ECB delaying its tightening are not negligible. The moderate expansion seems entrenched but inflation prospects look tame and far below the ECB’s target. In addition, the central bank may prefer to wait for more clarity on Italy where risks appear to be building up on different fronts. First, the economic pulse appears weak compared to other euro countries. Second, Italy’s banking system still looks vulnerable. And third, the euro-skeptic 5 star movement is leading in the polls of the general elections to be held next year. A delay in the ECB’s policy shift would keep a lid on the German 10 year yield and on peripheral spreads. In such a case, credit markets would enjoy the monetary boost longer and continue to perform well, especially in the high-yield segment.

Markets TANK As Italian Bonds Crash MOST IN 4 YEARS! - This Won't End Well
Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the recent bond bloodbath in Italy as we see a chain reaction throughout Europe and the United States. Italian 2 year yields spiked most since October 2014 and Italian 10 year yields spiked most since November 2014, the ECB is in a panic as it's overwhelmed in its own markets. Italian bonds are only 70bps tighter than US bonds! The markets were spooked by the mention of BoTs which affected Italian banks like Monte Dei Paschi, UniCredit and Intesa Sanpaolo; Italian bonds and Italian credit risk. This only vindicates what we've been talking about for a long time. The Italian markets and economy are in serious turmoil and the manipulation and centralization propping it up can only last so long. We cannot put a date on when the inevitable crash is, but the crash WILL happen and it's only a matter of when. The banks are insolvent, fiat always reverts to its true value of zero. The bubbles will burst and the bail-ins will happen. It's up to you the individual to prepare yourself. Be self sufficient, financially responsible, independent. Understanding the information provided is only the beginning, but it's the most important, most difficult part of the transformation that will bring a person off their knees and on their feet.

Eurobonds and Market Sentiment - Università Bocconi
A paper by Carlo Favero and Alessandro Missale defends the argument for a Eurobond but states that it is hard to think of solutions for the euro debt crisis without further steps towards political integration. Subscribe the Bocconi newsletter http://www.unibocconi.it/newsletter The prevalence of market sentiments over fundamentals in times of crisis provides the strongest economic justification to the introduction of a Eurobond, specifically a bond "issued by a group of euro-area member states backed by several and joint guarantees: each participating issuer would guarantee the totality of the obligations", according to the definition provided by Carlo Favero (Deutsche Bank Chair in Asset Pricing and Quantitative Finance, Department of Finance and IGIER) and Alessandro Missale (Università di Milano) in Sovereign Spreads in the Euro Area. Which Prospects for a Eurobond?, a paper recently presented at the Economic Policy Fifty-fourth Panel Meeting, hosted by the National Bank of Poland. The Eurobond would allow heavily indebted and less disciplined countries to access the debt market at lower rates, but would benefit also the most fiscally disciplined countries, as it could avoid the propagation of crises at a lower cost than the intervention of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF). The authors, though, admit that "it is hard to think of solutions of the euro debt crisis without further steps towards political integration" and suggest "some form of fiscal union to address macroeconomic imbalances with a common policy". "No doubt", they write, "the introduction of a Eurobond could signal a political will for greater fiscal unity, paving the way for deeper reforms of EU fiscal governance". Favero and Missale dismiss the argument that the Eurobond would solve a liquidity problem which would affect the euro-denominated bonds market. Comparing yield spreads and Credit Default Swaps (CDS), they find that spreads are almost totally due to default risk, while liquidity risk is irrelevant, and thus focus on the components of the default risk. Since proponents of the Eurobonds state that they could provide better market access to weaker member states by insulating them from financial contagion and could lower the risk of crisis propagation, while the opponents argue that Eurobonds would hamper market discipline, prolonging weaker states' reliance on debt, it's important to understand whether yield spreads reflect fiscal fundamentals (in this case markets should be let loose) or irrational fears (in which case markets wouldn't efficiently price risk and anything countering the contagion would be welcome). The authors, through a Global VAR model, find that there is a relation between fiscal fundamentals (operationalized as the expected deficit- and debt- to GDP ratios) and yield spreads, but it's neither linear, nor constant over time. It isn't linear because a country's spread is more sensitive to the spread hikes in countries fiscally closer to it (i.e. with similar fiscal fundamentals) and less sensitive to the distant ones; it's not constant because there is an overreaction in times of crisis, signalling a market malfunction. In August 2011, in the middle of the Greek crisis, they reckon the contagion effect to be 200 basis points for Italy and even more for Spain. "Our evidence", they write, "suggests that relying only on the disciplinary effects of financial markets to halt a crisis may not be enough as yield spreads are significantly driven by market sentiment". Political opposition to the Eurobonds is, nevertheless, powerful on the grounds of an unbalanced sharing of the benefits (for the undisciplined) and costs (for the disciplined) of the programme. The provision of joint guarantees is the only way for the Eurobond to obtain the same rates of the German Bund (in any other way the rate would be an average of the rates of the participating countries) and not to increase borrowing costs of Germany; even this way, though, the Eurobonds would be a cost for the most disciplined countries, which would see an increase in their liabilities. The empirical evidence provided in the paper speaks strongly in favour of"Conditional Eurobonds" with a collective underwriting guarantee issued by a new European Monetary and Fiscal Authority, where administratively set spreads will determine the annual side paymentsthat countries rated below Aaa will have to pay to countries rated Aaa in order to be able to access the programme. Gli Eurobond primo passo verso un'Unione fiscale Un paper di Carlo Favero e Alessandro Missale sostiene gli argomenti a favore degli Eurobond ma afferma che è difficile pensare a soluzioni alla crisi europea del debito che prescindano da ulteriori passi verso l'integrazione politica. http://www.university-courses-degree.com

Should We Be Positive About Negative Interest Rates?
Join the Elite Investor Club here - http://www.eliteinvestorclub.com/ http://www.grahamrowan.com/ - Visit my website for more Tips & Advice Subscribe to my channel for weekly videos. Watch last weeks video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR0HVSF93KY Should we be positive about negative interest rates? Imagine Captain Kirk came back to earth after a forty year voyage in space. Your job is to explain what’s changed in the global financial system while he’s been away. Starting with negative interest rates… Ok Jim, here’s how it works. You give me a hundred euros for this German government bond today, and in five years’ time I give you back ninety-five euros. Any questions? ‘Beam me up Scotty, they’ve all gone crazy down here…’ If you thought it strange that we still have emergency interest rates seven years after the crisis, you obviously haven’t adjusted to the ‘New Normal’. Not long ago we all thought the weirdest thing that could happen was central banks printing money and using it to buy government bonds. Those of us who are a bit old fashioned and belong to what you might call the Austrian school of economics had a technical term to describe what organisations like the Federal Reserve were doing – fraud! Now, QE is part of the new normal. But what happens when the forces of economics 101, supply and demand, collide with the new normal of biblical money printing? The answer is negative interest rates! You take a risk buying my bonds. And I reward you years in the future by giving you back less than you invested. You think I’m joking, don’t you. How does this concept make you feel? Let me do my best to give a rational explanation of something that appears to defy logic. You might want to toke on some wacky baccy before trying to follow this. Because of the risk of deflation in the Euro zone, the European Central Bank recently announced a massive QE programme. But, unlike the Fed in America or the Bank of England here, there’s no such thing as European bonds that they can buy. They have to spread their love around a bit like Mambo number 5. (A little bit of Jessica etc). So they have to buy bonds from some of the dodgier countries of southern Europe like Spain, Portugal and Greece. What happens when there are suddenly a lot more buyers for something? The price goes up, which in bond terms means the yield, the interest payment, goes down. So if the bonds of the dodgy countries go up in price a bit, those looking for the safety of stronger countries like Germany or Switzerland will pay even more for bonds issued by these safe havens. But, since their interest rates were already close to zero, this new splurge of buying has raised the prices so much that the yield has gone negative. This is something many economists thought could never happen. They talked in hushed tones about interest rates being ‘zero bound’. Like so much the economists tell us, this has proved to be utter B.S. Switzerland started it with a central bank rate of minus nought point two five per cent in December. They’ve since ‘raised’ the negative rate to nought point seven five per cent. The ECB has followed suit and is now charging banks to leave funds on deposit. And it’s not just banks and government bonds going negative. In recent weeks corporate bonds issued by the likes of Nestle and Shell have gone negative. So, in their search for what they perceive as safe investments, individuals and institutions are now prepared to take a guaranteed loss over periods of up to thirteen years in the case of Swiss government bonds. Madness? Or a certain sign that there’s mayhem on the horizon? If you haven’t already booked your seat at the wealth summit to find out what the best brains on the planet think is going to happen, be very careful out there!

Negative interest rates put world on course for biggest mass default in history
Negative interest rates put world on course for biggest mass default in history More than €2 trillion-worth of eurozone government bonds trade on a negative interest rate. It's a bubble that is bound to end badly. Here’s an astonishing statistic; more than 30pc of all government debt in the eurozone – around €2 trillion of securities in total – is trading on a negative interest rate. With the advent of European Central Bank quantitative easing, what began four months ago when 10-year Swiss yields turned negative for the first time has snowballed into a veritable avalanche of negative rates across European government bond markets. In the hunt for apparently “safe assets”, investors have thrown caution to the wind, and collectively determined to pay governments for the privilege of lending to them.

Here’s How Rising Interest Rates Will Affect the Stock, Bond and Housing Markets
The Federal Reserve is looking to hike short-term interest rates for the first time since June 2006. Uncertainty surrounding the timing of higher rates contributed to the unprecedented market jitters seen in stocks over the past few weeks. ‘A rate hike will be good for savers,’ said Brian Rehling, co-head of global fixed income strategy at Wells Fargo (WFC) Investment Institute. ‘Although the benefit is going to be quite small because the Fed’s going to go very slow here.’ Experts expect the Fed’s to initially hike short-term interest rates by just 25 basis points. ‘Investors should hold modest amounts of cash alternatives to meet near-term liquidity needs and emergency expenses,’ he added.

German bond yields fall further
http://www.euronews.com/ Germany's cost of borrowing has fallen to a new record low. On Wednesday the government easily sold 4.15 billion euros worth of 10-year government bonds at an average interest rate of one point three one percent. The auction shows how desperate investors are to buy "safe haven" German bonds and how little confidence they have in recent measures agreed by European policymakers to combat the eurozone debt crisis. The worry is that Madrid may need a full state bailout, which would stretch the limits of the European Stability Mechanism and leave the bloc defenceless in case the crisis engulfs Italy, one of the largest bond markets in the world. On Tuesday Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said Italy could be interested in tapping the fund to ease its borrowing costs. Germany will repay bonds and interest worth 40 billion euros this week and the prospect of a further 50 billion euros of payments due next week from triple-A rated countries including France and the Netherlands also boosted demand. For shorter-dated debt, investors are even willing to pay Germany to park their cash with it. Two-year yields traded in and out of negative territory this week.
