NEGATIVE YIELDS

The world of interest rates and interest rate products has gone “Topsy-Turvy. Traditionally borrows of money have to pay interest to lenders of money. This has been the norm since biblical times. Yet today, many corporations and governments are now experiencing NEGATVE interest rates, meaning they not only don’t have to pay any interest to borrow money, in fact, in certain situations the lender pays them! Over 30% of bonds issued by governments throughout the world are now negative yielding. This video, produced in conjunction with OTA (Online Trading Academy) explains this unprecedented phenomenon, and its implications to investors, corporations and governments.
