Risk premiums have been squeezed out of nearly every asset class, says Ray Dalio, making a short of bonds (presumably anything but Treasurys) maybe the best opportunity for returns. He's fuzzy on the timing though, other than the later in the year, the better. "He who lives by the crystal ball will eat shattered glass."

    BOND dropped by 0.18 %. I guess it is comparatively big drop precipitated by FED Chairman's statements today. I do feel that most of the treasuries are priced for perfection.

     

    BOND is still a hold, as I think economy will expand slowly. We will see what agreement congress makes. Actually sequestration would be good for the bond market...

    Advice please -

     

    Could someone please explain the ramifications of the "bubble" bursting to funds such as JNK, HYG and TIPS?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Dalio is a really smart guy and i am reluctant to disagree but take a look at this chart of the CRB index.

    commodity prices didn't get near the previous peak, even with all the central bank balance sheet expansion, and now it is falling. When you have weak economic growth and a disinflation trend it's hard to see a big increase in bond yields.
