The long bond continues to climb, now up more than a full point since the FOMC minutes yesterday. When the Fed got hawkish in 1993 after a long period of ease, bond prices collapsed. Now they gain? It seems as good of a tell as any that the economy is not ready to handle tighter policy (see Hoisington). TLT +0.7%.

    Gold is moving up again as well as the 10-year bonds by the drive of investors who returned their money obtained from selling these items..
    A major part of the side-line money obtained from the sell-off shares will be used later.

    Could be accounted for by heavy treasury purchases by the Fed. 3 - 3.75 billion scheduled for today. Tomorrow the scheduled Fed purchases are 1.25 - 1.75 billion. Let's see how the price does with a little less QE for the day.

    As interest rates rise, should DTYS and TBT go up in value?
