Market Outlook Q1 2015: A Look at European Bonds

In this month’s Q1 Economic Outlook you will find:

  • The U.S. bull market appears to be intact and and any correlation associated with the start of an interest-rate up-cycle is expected to be limited.
  • The European Central Bank’s sovereign bond purchasing program is a much larger initiative in terms of net new supply than programs put in place by other central banks since the crisis.
  • Nearly $1.5 trillion of European bonds are trading with a negative yield-to-maturity. In Germany, negative yields extend out to seven years.
