    Is the up move in TLT saying rates are going down? How could a good economy has declining interest rate?

    Cause the data being fed to us are lies/propaganda to make us feel richer. Growth from debt is not the solution.

    On a bubble to nowhere; or, as my grandpappy used to say-'if you don't know where you're going any road will get you there.' The trading group Journey expressed similar sentiment by noting that the wheel in the sky kept on turning.

    Its pretty clear to me the Treasury market is being pulled and is factoring in the Europe affect. US monetary policy was taking the strain. Now it is the turn of Europe. Europe combined with Japan now is creating a strong downward pull on US interest rates. It is really interesting to me how little press this gets on US/Seeking Alpha pages. Remember the USA is part of a bigger global financial network - this is nothing to do with the USA underperforming !

    How so? Are you saying that Europeans and Japanese are buying US Treasuries?

    Off course - sterling/the Euro/Japanese Yen have all been relatively strong recently. In Europe and Japan central banks are full-on with the monetary gas peddle. For these investors treasuries look good value on a spread basis.

    If the FED did not pay .25% interest on bank reserves we would have negative short term interest rates as the banks would have to buy t-bills until the yield is down to negative, competing with international buyers sovereign and otherwise. I think we will see this soon as the FED exits this bank subsidy going forward as well. This will drive l/t rates lower too IMO.
