Treasury rates are shooting higher again - the 10 year back to August levels at 2.22%. The world may be changing, and it's not about Europe. China looks to be moving into easing mode - buying bank shares, lifting property restrictions, and trying to make credit more available.

    Is this the beginning of the anticipated up tick in rates?
    If rates return to "normal" we are sunk because the debt service will crush the federal budget and the economy.

    China easing? Maybe so. Looks like the whole world want to extend and pretend for as long as they can anyway.

    Is this how rumors get spread? Some analyst says some local government may relax property restrictions, get linked couple of times, suddenly the news bulletin turns into 'signs of China easing are everywhere'!
