Those Amazing U.S. Markets, Part II: the bond market

In Part I of this series, I pointed out that U.S. bond prices remain near their maximum, theoretical price – while U.S. equity markets continue their largest/fastest “rally” in history. This contradicts more than a century of market behavior, not to mention basic economic fundamentals – since the drivers of high bond prices and high equity prices are diametrically opposed. I equated this to a thermometer, which simultaneously gives a reading of the “hottest” and “coldest” temperature on record.

What immediately followed were the worst “crashes” in U.S. real estate and equity markets in history.

The only possible defense of Bernanke's shameless support of Wall Street's scams was that he was merely grossly incompetent: making the two, worst “calls” in the history of markets – less than six months apart. That defense was negated by Bernanke's reappointment. In that farcical process, not only was no mention made of Bernanke's “Goldilocks economy” or his “soft landing”, but Bernanke was praised for doing a great job...
