+++ US Treasury Bills Trade at Negative Yields +++
For the first time in history, not even in 1929, $27 billion of three-month bills were sold at a discount rate of 0.005% and are now trading at negative yields. Investors will get back less than they pay for them for the security of actually being repaid. That shows real fear in the markets.

Unfortunately British Gilts are not considered such a safe bet…
