Let's see...

No QE = higher rates

Higher rates = death to The Great Ponzi

Death to The Great Ponzi = loss of power for TPTB

Conclusion: QE can't and won't ever end.

And on the other hand, QE cant continue either....the great conundrum. Painted themselves into a corner with La Brea tar.

No QE = higher rates

Nope.  Counter-intuitively, the opposite happened in 2010 when QE ended.  Rates fell.  Check for yourself.

After last week's massive rally, this is a very normal pullback (in prices).

Buy on the dips!

LOL, rates going negative...'thats just normal'...oh ok.

Nobody said negative (unless you're talking about the 30 day bill which just did) on the 5 year.  Just closer to ~1.0% before the big reversal, when QE3 gets pre-announced.

Again, study last year's template: the huge move DOWN in rates happened AFTER qe1 ended.  QE2 ends in a couple of days.....

The 'template' is 'Get everyone 100% sure there will be never ending QE's, then pull the trap door out from under their sheeple asses'.

Watch and see.

If no QE3 arrives, then all the better for a long trade (NOT buy & hold) in Treasuries.

Without QE3(etc.), what will the sheeple do?  Panic.

Where will they run to when they panic?

Short-term Treasuries.

Perhaps. For a very short term hold. Till treassuries perceived "flight to security" status is revealed to be fraudulent. Sometime this winter.

I was short in the fall 2010.  There's little doubt that a rally won't last.

But in the meantime, why not grab an opportunity to profit (or avoid losses).  If everyone is so bearish here, and risk assets (especially US equities) are still near their recent multi-year highs, then why not gain from what will almost certainly be a flight to safety when the shit hits the fan?

We've seen this movie (clip) before....last summer.  We know how it ends.

The script is exactly as you say, except in 2011 it has already played out. Stocks have already corrected to price in QE2's end, and UST have already rallied. There is no "event" that occurs this week. The event has already occurred. To hold the view that the shit hits the fan starting after June 30, you have to believe something changes. It doesn't. The FED will still invest maturities and divs from their total balance sheet. Also, there will be less flipping of UST to the FED. You should use your script and consider a twist: UST just hit their price highs for the year.

I think the flight to safety has been called into question by the utter lack of flight to safety so far in 2011.  However, bank recapitalization will force banks to raise capital through debt or equity offerings then lever it up and buy US Treasury securities to meet Basel 3 & D-F tier 1 requirements.  But it's still only short term cover for the thieves in Washington.

I concur, this is what I expect. If rates do go up, they'll come back down again, and then some.

Today is all AUM (Assets Under Management).  Desks pumping on vapo thin volume to get that one last summer bonus.  Then the massive selling post QE2 to get further QE.  Thursday's the day.

Yep, I agree that this vapo-rally will end very soon.  "Good" news out of Greece could push it a bit higher but in the coming weeks and months it's difficult to see what will impel this market higher.  Taking up shorts accordingly and hording cash.


Good luck!

It can't be this simple. It would be the most anticipated trade (sell UST's) ever! Something will happen to change this. If not a QE morph the event can and should be pervasive stock selling. Get the 30 day T-Bill all the way back to 12bps and roll out the asset buying spree, yet again. You should own "more" Gold by then.
