for the first time in four years on Monday as a massive Bank of
Japan stimulus program left investors searching for

    The 30-year swap spread, or the cost of
exchanging 30-year fixed-rate interest payments for floating
rates, was quoted at minus 4.75 on Monday. The spread was last
that slim in early January 2009.
