One would think it's a sleepy day looking at the major averages, but Treasury yields are dropping sharply. At 1.83%, the 10 year is down to levels not seen since early October, shortly before stocks took off on one of their best months ever. Old faithful, TLT +1.2% for the day and +30% YTD.

    I saw this and it started at 11 am sharp. Anybody knows why? It looks to me that the big guys got some news that they trade on and we small people are left behind.

    this will be one of the rare years where there will be no "santa rally" or "january effect"....
