Now I have to think whether the model will at all accommodate negative interest rates with simple code changes, or if we have to entirely redo
and not even just negative short rates, but can a negative UST out 5 years be accomodated with the model. it could happen for sure. If the deflation really starts to take hold and the Fed ramps up a NIRP, you will see the UST plummet across the board
