A term used to describe an ultra-low interest rate environment. When the Federal Reserve takes short term rates to zero or just above zero, other methods of economic stimulus such as buying back maturing Treasury securities, must be examined and undertaken. Zero bound can also mean when the value of a stock has diminished to the point of having no bid.
