Stop Being So Negative

Since everyone is talking about the amount of negative-yielding debt, I decided to put together a visual that gives context about what types of bonds and what issues have negative yields in IAGG.

Trying to make positive yields "happen" reminds me of the following scene from Mean Girls.

The total stock of negative-yielding bonds is above $17tn according to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Negative-Yielding Debt Index

This interactive visual shows the type, country, and issuer name of issues that have negative yields. The size of the square is the duration.

Click on a type or country to break it down further.
