Short Term Bond Yields Press Higher

It wasn't all that long ago short term bond yields were yielding paltry returns for investors.  That's changed course lately.  The US 1 Year Treasury Bill has been flirting with a 1% yield the last couple days.  I think it might be able to break past that barrier this week. The 1 year has not traded above 1% since 2008!

Meanwhile German 1 Year Treasury Bunds have seen the exact opposite. Especially lately. They look to be on a crash course collision with a negative -1% yield. They hit as high as -0.959%.
