Today, more than 60% of the outstanding volume of euro-denominated government bonds are trading at yields lower than zero percent.<\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li> Our Chart of the Week shows the volume share of negatively yielding euro-denominated nominal government bonds for a large sample of euro area sovereigns in relation to their respective government-debt-to-GDP ratios. Unsurprisingly, there is a negative relationship between these two variables. We compare today\u2019s situation with that of the end of April 2018, i.e. a few days before investors began to express criticism towards the fiscal policies envisaged by the newly elected Italian government.<\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li> The chart tracks two meaningful developments that have occurred over the past 15 months. First, all countries in the sample reported decreases in debt-to-GDP ratios in 2018 \u2013 with the exception of Italy. Second, the volume share of negatively yielding nominal government bonds has increased (markedly) for all countries \u2013 with the exception of Italy, where their share has even declined (even when the tremendous bond-market rally over the past couple of weeks is taken into account). Relative to other eurozone member countries, there seems to be a cost associated with adopting a confrontational stance with the European Commission when it comes to fiscal matters. Recent budget amendments have helped Italy avoid an excessive deficit procedure and have supported its bond market, which now shows yield levels that are closer to those of Italy\u2019s eurozone peers.<\/li><\/ul>","synopsisDe":"","synopsisIt":"","analysts":[{"first":"Kornelius","last":"Purps","link":"https:\/\/www.unicreditresearch.eu\/index.php?id=analyst&tx_research_piedition%5Banalyst%5D=29&tx_research_piedition%5Baction%5D=analyst&tx_research_piedition%5Bcontroller%5D=Edition&cHash=a6adcfea769dc3c45c9d0918cf799358"}],"countries":[{"name":"Italy","ticker":"IT","link":"https:\/\/www.unicreditresearch.eu\/index.php?id=country&tx_research_piedition%5Bcountry%5D=5&tx_research_piedition%5Baction%5D=country&tx_research_piedition%5Bcontroller%5D=Edition&cHash=39d7224c0452f3251d42f8f8656acb2b"}]}]
