    So much for the Janet Yellen hit job. Yield curve steepening again. We have a full year before anything happens, bond traders deal in minutes and hours. and days.

    Yes, and the average inflation rate throughout the yield curve is about 7%. This is defined by the dictionary definition of inflation: "an increase in the supply of money", not the rigged CPI figures. Somebody is going to end up with the Old Maid.

    It is not 1 or 5 year auctions that is a concern. It is the long dated US treasuries that no one but the Federal reserve with QE wants that is a concern, especially since foreign demand is almost non-existent and US participants can't or won't buy them.

    Looks like they are wising up. Not good news. That means serious inflation ahead.
