Bonds bounce. The near-continuous calls for a bear market in Treasurys are dashed again for the time being, with the 10-year yield - after a quick surge higher to start 2013 - back to 1.84%, not far from where it started the year. Today's buying comes as ADP and ISM reports disappoint, and the banking sector (XLF -0.9%) gets a bit wobbly. TLT +0.6% today, -2.1% YTD.

    Most important target by the FED (Bernanke) is to contol price-stabilization. As money-printing is stlill necessary this stabilizaion has to be controlled by the interest-rate, which is kept as low as possible.

     

    At the moment there is a rising trend of this interest-rate so 10y-bonds go up because people expect a drop of share-prices. As a result the yields on these bonds will go down, and so TBT shares go down.
