Are markets unprepared for a big rally in Treasury prices, asks Paul Day. JPMorgan's Treasury Client Survey shows the highest level of shorts since June 2011 - right around the time Treasury prices began a sharp advance. TLT -3.4%, TBT +6.2% YTD.

    The shorts in June 2011 got KILLED in the following two months. Look at a chart of the 10yr vs. gold in Aug 2011: hyperbolic, in unison.

    you know haha, i had been thinking the same thing but the more i look at it like for instance the cot on the commercials for the ust 10/20, man, they have really bumped up over the last couple of weeks and the folks holding these contracts are definitely better connected than me;

     

    also, look at the correlation on the pm with the ust and i think the cme lightening up on margin is all managed from above to defend the ust market;

     

    something to think about
