Most recently, thanks to negative interest rates, the state was able to make a lot of profits from debt. Now he has to pay something again for the ten-year bonds. However, there is not much in the way for investors.

Federal bonds have always been considered less profitable, but as particularly safe.

For investors, the government bonds have recently been mostly a loss-making business due to negative interest rates.

For the first time since the beginning of May 2019, the yield on the trend-setting ten-year federal bond rose above zero percent on Wednesday and reached plus 0.006 percent.

The yield on comparable US Treasuries has already risen to plus 1.884 percent due to the prospect of interest rate hikes by the Fed in the near future.
