    I'm looking for a good instrument to place a 12 month bet on higher interest rates. Nothing too esoteric. Something I can access on IB, for example.

    Advice from an EXPERIENCED user appreciated.

    I guess going short Eurodollar futures, right?

    Can eurodollar move higher than 100 even though that would mean negative interest rates?
  5. Goldman sachs index, might be worth looking at for respective value, buying dips if you like.

    How would eurodollar move above 100? Interest rates cannot fall below zero!

  8. In the last 10 years there were a number of times that interest rates on bonds were below zero in Japan.
  9. Which interest rates - long, short or intermediate? The yield curve doesn't move up and down in unison.
