T-Bond yields will be low for years, even if the Fed has to buy 99% of each auction?

  1. This "interest rates going higher" is nonsense, as the Fed has unlimited (printed) funds?
  2. Only until the world calls "BULLSHIT" on this ploy... then, we'll be firmly painted into a corner.
  3. The Chinese can smoke the fed out with one sale.

    Of course they have unlimited funds but keeping rates artificially low like they have for the last 18 months will have its consequences. Do you honestly think rates can stay this low forever, not possible.

    You're right, there would be unintended consequences; but when? Kind of like Drunk Driving, one of these days the drunk will get into a major accident (possibly fatal), but the drunk might be able to keep driving drunk for a couple of decades.
