Here's something for the guaranteed to happen file. When asking a futures brokers for rates on treasury bills for margin collateral, I am informed the 9 basis points of interest will no longer cover the new monthly carrying charges and execution fee for their trouble. So I can look forward to excess cash getting a negative nominal return along with negative real return. I decided on an alternative plan.

    Be careful about that. a few basis points are not worth the potential headaches and risks, even if you suffer a negative yield. Make it up in your trading - That is my opinion.
