Looks like the game is working. Keep trying to push people into equities via low yields.
A game where people are pushed around from investment to investment? My icon resembles that.
Its like watching a man push a crowd of barefoot people into a room full of mouse traps.
The "risk continuum":
gold <---> fiat <---> bonds <---> equities
whelp, cannot stay in fiat or bonds, so move left or move right.
is MORE RISK now the most prudent decision?
...I weep for retirees who will soon be facing the cold winter months deciding whether to pay the heating bill or to eat bread with their dwindling incomes and purchasing power.
If you look at that graph then a more fitting title would have been:
"Hello Japan, hello deflation, here we come!"
please, explain. which chart? gold? yen? T-bonds? 2-year Treasuries?
i saw the yen break the daily moving average today, which may mean Japanese Central Bankers are going to fight price deflation through easy money every step of the way but, otherwise, what do you mean?
'Push 'people' into treasuries'....OH you mean Geithner and Bernanke.
Not so fast, with such a high BTC, the demand is there for the low yields.
Just waiting for the money markets to drop below $1 (stage 11 in the series of catastrophic events, lesser importance than unwinding of 10s and 30s)
But college tuitions are going up 5% a year and jr. is "going" to college in 2 years. .. or is he?
middle and upper middle classes ... you are @#$%ed.
Yea Jr. will be attending the campus of 'School of Hard Knocks, 1940 Campus'
I cant wait. Im lubed and ready. Just go slow at first.
My experience is 7 - 8%.
Only 5%? Where the hell do you live? I've had the pleasure to see 15% increases followed by 8% increases. Can't wait for the student loan system to die so we can get some sanity back into the education system.
No worries Jason T, my kids can always go to an APOL or STRA school...what's the worst that can happen??? \sarcasm off\
A comparison of yields at auctions and same-day or nearest-day Pomos would be interesting.
Last few days of BS money laundering until the mother of all corrections in early Nov. Just sayin'.
I wish I understood this type of post/information. Anyone have an informative link for dummies on this?
So the treasury/fed sells shit and buys it too? Where's the skim, and who the hell is buying into it beside the ponzi schemers?
Oh, sorry. I missed the word informative. Try this:
Bond prices keep rising (yields keep dropping), if this wasn't due to demand then we would see a low BTC (investor bids versus the offers). As mentioned in the post, anything over 3 is pretty high.
The demand is there for any and all risk-free yield one can find. Read the TIPS post from yesterday, auction closed at -.55 yield. Those are a different security all together (linked to core inflation) but still, just shows demand is there for certainty.
the challenge for investors in TIPS comes when they figure out who is defining and calculationg "inflation".
Bernanke: Do you have any twos?
B. Gross: No, go fish.
TLT down at the same time.
