Printing money for junk bonds

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. Between 74-89% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

In order to fight deflation the European Central Bank is still continuing the QE (Quantitative Easing) program. The ECB is effectively buying all kinds of debt and is printing new money to pay for these bonds.

The ECB is loading up government bonds on its balance sheet. The bank has even bought non-investment grade corporate credit (junk). The ECB is creating new money out of thin air and is injecting about 80 billion euros per month in the financial system.
