WH considering idea of buying 25 and 50-year bonds to finance $1.3 trillion stimulus – Bloomberg

The White House is considering the option of buying 25- and 50-year bonds to finance the $1.3 trillion stimulus package to counter the negative impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the economy, Bloomberg reporter Saleha Mohsin said on Thursday.

Market reaction

Although the 10-year US Treasury bond yield climbed above the 1.2% mark with the initial reaction, it struggled to extend its rebound and was last seen down 5.45% on the day at 1.128%.
