How Bad Is Europe Doing? 18 EMEA Nations Now Have Negative 2-year Sovereign Yields (Is Italy The Next Greece?)

It used to be only 16, but Europe, the Middle East and Africa now has 18 nations with negative 2 year sovereign yields. That is, 18 nations that require additional monetary stimulus.

Italy used to be a  member of the sub-zero EMEA club, but recent election and budgetary woes have sent Greek 2 year sovereign yields above zero.

Italy’s 10-year sovereign yield is also rising, second place behind Greece. But not as bad as Turkey, Nigeria, Lebanon and Russia.

Of course, Greece and Italy will need constant bailing-out of their fiscal woes. Along with other EMEA nations.
