Now they tell us? There's a shortage of long-dated government paper

  • In another installment of articles you never see at market bottoms, Bloomberg is out with a piece talking about a shortage of long-term Treasury bonds just at the time when new pension rules are set to force a surge in demand for the paper.
  • “The long bond is marching to the tune of its own drum,” says David Rosenberg. “There is natural institutional demand.”
  • At 3.39%, the 30-year Treasury bond yield is off more than 60 basis points in 2014, and at its lowest level in nearly a year.
  • ETFs: TBT, TLT, TMV, TBF, EDV, TTT, TMF, ZROZ, SBND, TLH, DLBS, VGLT, UBT, TLO, TENZ, LBND, TYBS, DLBL
