Should Treasury yields rise on back of a Romney victory, use the price weakness to buy, says Pimco's Josh Timons. The conventional wisdom - that the Fed becomes more hawkish with Romney as president - is likely wrong, with even the candidate himself backing away from the "fire Bernanke" attitude which served well in the primaries.

    Wise advice. The Fed tells Presidents what to do. It's not the other way around.....

    How can there be "conventional wisdom" about what Romney thinks or might do? Mitt doesn't know himself, from one day to the next. The Sandy flip flop (I was opposed to FEMA before I was for it) was the final straw regarding this man for me. He has proven repeatedly he has only one core principal, that whatever is best for himself at the present moment is what he'll do or say right now.

     

    I'm just an amateur investor but I know I would never invest based upon a supposed course of action this man might take. If I did, I know I'd be doing nothing more than throwing the dice down to the end of the Craps Table.

    Amen on that. It seems weird to say this about a devout, teetotaling, devoted family man, but... he sometimes literally seems to have no principles.

     

    While conservatives may (understandably) prefer him to Obama, heads up conservatives -- there is NO telling what he will actually do or stand for.
