LONDON, Aug 7 (Reuters) - If you thought exponential price surges and bubble-like vertical chart lines were only the stuff of cryptocurrencies or tech stocks, think again. Euro zone government bonds with super-long maturities between 50 and 100 years are surging.
These long-dated bonds reflect recession concerns, a collapse of inflation expectations, negative interest rates and expectations of ever more central bank bond buying. But for speculators, the price gains this year are eye-watering.
Austria's 100-year bond has seen a 63% rise since the start of this year. The country's 70-year bond has rallied nearly 50%.
