$24 Billion 91-Day Bills Auctioned Off At 0.041%; Window Dressing Theory Fail
New year window dressing was responsible for the micro yields on bill auctions pre-New Year. Or so the theory went. So why did we just have another effectively zero bill auction? And no, the Lehman scramble for risk-free parallel is oh so very inappropriate here - after all funds have to window dress their Dec. 31 2010 results... Granted, a little early. So we ask, again, who is buying stocks when real money is willing to accept zero returns to park their cash in "risk-free" equivalents. Liberty 33 - once again, the podium is all yours.
