Negative Interest Rates: A Steven Bradbury Moment

While we are in the midst of the 2016 Olympic Games, this fact would be hilarious if it was not such a serious matter.

What do Steven Bradbury and US Treasury Bonds have in common? All of their competitors keep falling.

You will see from the attached table that Switzerland is running negative yields across all maturities right up to 30 years.

Crazy stuff.

Alternatively, the United States, the United Kingdom (and Australia which is not listed) are still posting positive interest rate yields on sovereign bonds for all maturities.
