(Aug 23): Japan’s sovereign debt market is in danger of joining Germany with negative bond yields across all maturities.

Yields in the Asian nation are already negative all the way out to debt maturing in 15 years, and buyers from home and abroad have been snapping up longer-tenor Japanese government bonds, adding to the downward pressure.

More sub-zero bonds in one of the world’s biggest economies would be a blow to everyone from mom-and-pop savers to global money managers, robbing them of a safe place to invest and encouraging more funds into risky assets. It would also be a huge set back for the Bank of Japan and its a high-stakes campaign to reflate the economy.
