U.S. Treasurys ended their best year since 2008 with slight gains, sending the benchmark 10-year note to 1.878% for its first year closing sub-2% since at least 1977. For the year, Treasury bonds of all maturities returned 9.64% through Thursday, easily beating corporate and high-yield debt as well as major U.S. stock indexes. (also)

    Sounds very similar to the 2000 tech bubble, this time with govt.

     

    And this time the *pop* sound will be the loudest one yet with a strange little fart-like wet fizzle at the end.

     

    Maybe some death wheeze heavy breathing also, like Larry King, constipated, grunting out an A flat.

     

    All you govt. paper holders, it was fun while it lasted. Better not be the last one standing when the music stops.

     

    Find a seat while you still got one. Don't be the bagholder. We all know what its filled with.
