Half of European government and 20% of their corporate debt is currently negative. Obviously plenty of buyers.

The ECB is ready to cut further and has cited global trade uncertainty and seeing a global slowdown. We are creating our own recession.

You think is significant because there was some spike in interest rates after 2010?

You are conflating the overnight rate with the rate for US Treasuries. The two are different. Trump is haranguing the Fed to lower the overnight rate. The rate for US Treasuries is determined by the market. The longer the term is for the security, the less it is affected by the overnight rate. The benchmark US security is the 10-year bond, which is only slightly affected by what the Fed does.
