  1. that Short term rates are 1.00%...
    and 30 year bond prices are not crashing like a bastard...
    I assume it will begin, in earnest...but I am just talking my position...
     
  2. The Fed doesn't control long rates, and nervous investors are buying the 30 year out of fear of default on alternatives... jmg

    buy TBT for longterm investment. rates are going higher
     
  4. I know that G...just curious as to the logic - even panicked investors are willing to lose money to NOT lose money...buying bonds that are net drains...
    eventually that logic has to stop...
