Treasury yields are little-changed - the 10-year yielding 1.65% - after having a night to sleep on news the Fed is going to pump another $267B into the long-end between now and the end of the year. Last fall's Operation Twist had no success at bringing long rates down - they started falling this Spring when it became evident growth was again slowing.

  • There might be an upside to this. Debt yields are becoming so low that holding bonds is no longer a sane option. We are running out of the high-return options as even those prices are driven to the sky.

     

    Time to get back into stocks?

  • This is not the upside, it is the scary-ass downside! When pension funds are being forced out of the bond markets there is no protection for money anywhere...we're well past danger will robinson

  • The new Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Senator James Sasser, and also Treasury Secretary Brady have expressed concern on this topic. I have a feeling that when this pension fund nut gets exposed, it will lead to some legislative reform. Social Security is one example. Borrowing money from the S.S. Trust Fund and replacing it with negative interest bonds. How long can that last?
