    Just recently I learned the reason why the bond market is so bullish is not because of investors buying or anything to do with flight to safety/quality, but because of heightened risks of interest rate swaps among the banks in the OTC market, forcing them to offset previous contracts with new contracts with higher notional values, thus creating artificial demands in US treasuries.

     

    Nobody is buying in the bond market except the dealers trading among themselves in interest rate swaps. The bullishness in the bond market is a mirage.

    Author’s reply » PIMCO is a vehicle - fund flows go into the vehicle. Unrelated to fund flows.
