seriously ZH ?

you don't measure bond moves in yield.  it was a 1.83% sell-off in price.

wow, what a rout.

You do realize that 45 bips over 5 years is 1.24% right?

Or were you joking?

So what does this indicate?  Does it mean that interest rates at banks will go up?  Does it indicate that PM or other commodity prices should go up or down?

It indicates that when the money spigot is turned off, interest rates rise quickly.  The banksters doth protest, turn the printers back on.

Since only the biggest banks in the US control the spigot and since the spigot has been turned down, the banksters you indicate who are protesting, must be banksters outside the circle of trust.  The fat cats control the spigot.  Everyone else is on their own.

You expect rationality in phony markets?  Phony PM paper prices are down, meaning you have yet another chance to exchange failing fait for real money.  Get out of all paper, stop trading, starve the beast and, of course, buy as much PM as you can as fast as you can.

No problem.  The government's exploding cost of servicing its debt is just offset by all the capital gains taxes from everyone cashing in equities.

Algos DO pay taxes don't they?

Oversold, big-time.  Buy it.  

In a few weeks, reality will set in---QE and fiscal austerity will soon begin.  Breakevens will collapse, and so will yields.

It happened in 2010 (remember, yields didn't collapse until about a month after QE1 ended).  The same thing will happen in 2011.

It happened in 2008, and surging yields quickly choked the economy.

Well, by "quickly", a couple of months later.

I hear this John Williams:

"

According to John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics, if the U.S. government used GAAP accounting principles the "real" U.S. government budget deficit each year would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 trillion dollars.  Williams believes that the U.S. government is essentially bankrupt and that our current system is not anywhere close to sustainable....

Generally, you'll find that the accounting for unfunded liabilities for Social Security, Medicare and other programs on a net-present-value (NPV) basis indicates total federal debt and obligations of about $75 trillion. That's 15 times the gross domestic product (GDP). The debt and obligations are increasing at a pace of about $5 trillion a year, which is neither sustainable nor containable. If the U.S. was a corporation on a parallel basis, it would be headed into bankruptcy rather quickly."

and

 

"John Williams at ShadowStats.com still runs the numbers the way they were in those bygone days. Let’s recalculate…

22.3% unemployment + 11.2% consumer price index = 33.5% misery index

That compares to a peak misery index of 22.0% in June 1980."

It's baked in. Playing brinksmanship in Warshington with the "debt ceiling" for a few more weeks while they do some maintenance work on the printer arrays. QE3 rolls out shortly after an "agreement" is reached.

The chaos caused by all of this will amplify the inflationary impacts of printing as it becomes impossible for producers of real stuff to plan production with any significant lead time.

He is not going anywhere.  Just another in a long line of rumors, with many more to come, I'm sure.

No way Obummer puts up a new T.Sec. for Senate confirmation between now and the election.  Period, end of story.  Timmy could be caught naked in bed with 2 sheep and doberman & would still stay on through 2012.
