Denmark - 10 years at minus 0.5%; 20 years mortgage at 0%; 30 years at 0.5%

In Denmark’s US$495 billion mortgage-backed covered bond market, another milestone was reached on Wednesday as Nordea Bank Abp said it will start offering 20-year fixed-rate loans that charge no interest.

The development follows an announcement earlier in the week by Jyske Bank A/S, which said it will start issuing 10-year mortgages at a coupon of minus 0.5 per cent. Danes can also now get 30-year mortgages at 0.5 per cent, and Nordea recently adjusted its prospectus to allow for home loans up to 30 years at negative interest rates.

To add - these are fixed rate products.

Wait until negative rates come to Canada. Bears will lose their minds.

How much are houses there and what are the requirements for owning/living in Denmark?

To be fair, RE in continental EU is generally not very hot, save for a few booming cities like Amsterdam (basically competitors to London). Since the official language is not English, there just aren't many highly skilled and ambitious immigrants from the developing world flooding to the major cities. Even though I'm a bull, I still want to acknowledge that interest rates in the English speaking world is unlikely to go as low as in Europe or Japan, as the relatively high level of skilled immigration and nominal total GDP growth means central banks don't have to cut rates to stimulate economy as much.

As the rest of the world is going to negative interest rates the U.S. dollar is continuing to strenghten, further fueling the U.S. economy. What ensues is the inevitable, the Fed will be forced to raise rates causing a recession, and will then in turn bring back rates back to zero as it did in 2009.

This makes no sense. Raising rates will further strengthen the dollar

There is a chance that the next downturn will be inflationary given that asset prices across all classes are inflated right now. When the next downturn hits and the massive sell off begins, you will see inflation creeping into everyday things. This will force the FED to raise rates. I fully see a bigger QE coming and I am not entirely sure it will have the same impact as the last one.
