"It's a great time to be issuing high-yield debt but not to be investing in it," says a P-E honcho, as European bank debt is the latest to benefit from investor's quest for any sort of yield. Of note, recently bailed-out Bank of Ireland found strong demand this week for $1.3B of bonds. "The markets have seen this movie before," writes Jason Zweig.

    Meanwhile, some force(s) unknown to physics or to economics keep pushing gold down. There is a lot of potential energy being stored up as prices and rates are being artificially pushed in a direction contrary to the reality of the situation.
    Eventually there is going to be a fireball of a reaction.


    One might guess that the dollar will dive, rates will rise and gold will suddenly defy gravity.


    If I'm wrong, I'm going to lose some money.

    And why would the dollar dive ?? Other major currency issuers will probably devalue even more than the US.
