© Reuters. - Yields on two short-term bonds turned negative Wednesday, as demand for safer assets continued.

The 1-Month Treasury yielded -0.013%, while the 3-Month yielded 0.036%, according to data.

Negative yields aren’t too surprising as money continues to flow into Treasuries and with the Federal Reserve fed funds rate at 0% to 0.25%.

President Donald Trump had been clamoring for negative rates from the Fed before the Covid-19 crisis to make U.S. borrowing costs cheaper, in line with European bonds.

Let's stop calling it capitalism. When these markets are always manipulated we can't call it anything other than a casino that just wants to keep the lights on.
Fed is out of tricks anddry power after this ***into the air.
I mean yea, I wasn't surprised by any of this. Lol.
Somebody has to buy stocks of nobody else will, right?
Don't believe negative rates in the secondary market is what Trump was clamoring for. For that, you go to the Fed's policy on payments to its member banks of interest on required and excess reserves.
Ha. Questions but no real answers = recession
curve inversion..  recession
does this mean a big buy for dollar
Not at all.
Negative yield isn’t good for dollar. This is going to drive insurance comps and banks mad
what positions should be considered to capitalize on this?
buy gold and silver miners - buy the shares and not the ETFs and for extra security, try to obtain the shares and not just your shares pooled in an omnibus account of a broker. The ASX guarantees that you actually become the registered holder of the shares
u have any particular markets to purchase with?
we're in big trouble
Not as much trouble as Eurozone, and all other major currencies from the virus causing lockdowns/unemployment.
