Briefly staring into the abyss as the 10-year yield hit 3.56%, the bond market rallies strongly over the last 24 hours to close the week about unchanged. The death of the bond bull market is put on hold... at least until Monday.

    Are we now supposed to believe that the economy is not doing as well as we were told by all those smart economists yesterday?

     

    If it goes back to 2.50% will they say Bernanke was correct all along?

    The death of the bond bull market does not preclude rallies like this one. All it means is that these will now be the exception, rather than the rule.

     

    Yields can't go lower than zero.

    This is a low liquidity markets and movements are exaggerated on both sides, but downside momentum does seem to be weakening. If we take out 122'03 on the 30 year and 121'08 on the 5 year - it might be a trend change. Otherwise it is just a dead cat bounce and the downtrend continues.

     

    Interesting though that stocks and bonds seem to be moving together now for almost the last week. Money going out of Money market and gold into stocks and bonds?
