Treasurys continue to sell off, the yield on the 10-year of 1.78% is the highest since May, and up from 1.39% in 3 weeks. Prices are far from cheap though. A buyer today would lose 6.78% of his/her principal - equal to more than 3 years of coupons - with an increase in yields of just another 50 basis points (h/t tradefast). TLT -5.4% since July 24.
