The move into Treasurys has left the yield curve at its flattest level since the end of 2008, with 30-year - off 8 bps to 2.82% - yielding only 273 bps more than the 90-day T-bill. At 1.71%, the 10-year is approaching its lowest yield ever. As in 2011 among the world's most hated asset classes, Treasurys in 2012 are close to overtaking stocks yet again.

    Which as of May 2012 is accurate. However, he said growth was "modest", unemployment is still too high, and that there are many risks to the economy. Can't accuse Bernanke of painting a Rosy picture.
