The buyers who stampeded to buy 10-year Treasurys priced to yield 1.46% at July's auction are absent today (at a 1.68% yield). Today's bid-to-cover ratio of 2.49 fell far below last month's 3.61, and direct bidders took down just 5.2% of the total vs. 45.4% in July, leaving the primary dealers to mop up the rest. TLT -0.5%.

    I can't imagine the logic of buying bankrupt American treasuries. Want to stop the stupidity in DC, stop giving them money.
