Thread: Could U.S. join the negative yield club?

    Default Could U.S. join the negative yield club?

    Analysts, including former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, say it is possible for yields to fall below zero like seen in parts of Europe and Japan. Negative yields would most likely needed to be preceded by a recession in the U.S. economy current uncertainty in trade and the global economy lets that idea be a possibility in the longer term.


    Greenspan says ‘there is no barrier’ to negative yields in the US

    I think negative rates are crazy & certainly hope we don't ever go there.

    Favorite quote of the day comes from Market Watch:

    Carl Weinberg, chief economist at High Frequency Economics, noted that when a 10-year government note has negative interest rates, it is worth less than “a bag of dirt stored in your basement.”
    I took that as a buy signal for dirt. Just bought 10 bags at home depot... probably going to be a long-term hold.
