Looming end of QE = increased bid for USTs, what a surprise (to some)
I'm at a crosssroad right now. Seems like there's short-term support at around 3.05% (10-year).
I'd like to see the yield back up to 3.3% or 3.4%, so that I can go all in again, for the ride back down to sub-3.0%.
But I'm concerned that support doesn't hold. And the closer we get to the end of QE2, the sooner we break below 3.0%.
As much as I'd like to double dip on this trade, I'm more concerned about not missing the big ride down!
BTW, I wonder WTF Bill Gross is thinking right now, after being on the wrong side of the 10-year's collapse from 3.65 to 3.05? Yikes!
My oh my, indirects are coming back.
My oh my me oh, indirects are where it's at. I hope Tyler was only shitting about his short exposure. His dullar long is working nicely.
what a joke...record BTC for the debt issuance of a bankrupt State
Suckers around the world born every minute. Wait what? infertility problem? oh no, check that.
By around the world I assume you are alluding to the
Caribbean banking centers - cough cough
Alright nigga`h lets catch the bad guys/gals.?
Looks like the meaning of "extended period" is in the process of extending.
Nothing like a negative real rate of return.
Not for the guys who bought 7Y last month 25bp cheaper.
exactly, plus for many, this may turn out to be much "less" negative depending on much more "extending" can be done.
One month doesn't make the investment unless you are flipping the issue. But if you are a coupon clipper you are gonna get killed.
If you're a coupon-clipper, then price fluctations on the bond itself make no difference and you should take the longest duration you can find, collecting the premium on a risk you don't care about.
It kills you in the sense that you get a negative rate of return on your money due to inflation. Sure you get your principal back but it will buy a lot less in the future. Not to mention your 2% coupon is about 4% under the real rate of inflation. It's a lose lose scenario.
So when does the Treasury bubble burst?
when everyone walks away. Need to have another game in town first.
Like a world war breakout for example.
Or when the dollar is worth 1/100th of its present value?
When the potential 'profit' is no longer outweighs the risk. There's still room at the long end. With last month's 7 Year of 2.71%, & this latest pricing at just 2.43%, seems there's 'money' to be made in bonds.
Nobody wants to follow Bill Gross in the charge of the bond vigilantes. lol
I can't wait to see his reaction to sub 3% yields on the 10y.
How's that short position working out Bill?
Easy really - the FED is just getting overseas banks to buy on their behalf.
Where does Tyler get that bid/cover graph from? and can it be gotten for before 2003?
He got it from Adobe. Stock symbol ADBE
So the higher the price goes (lower yield) the more people want them??? I don't get it; what am I missing?
Banks now just gambling that the FED will bail their bonds out. Just a casino of drunks.
Thanks SheepDog, I got it now: The Fed will auction off bonds to buy the bonds that they auction off...genius! That should work really well until...... hey, wait a minute...WTF???
not buying the argument that bond strength is actually weakness. face it, our bonds are in demand, and will be for a very long time.
Right....because WE have the best printing presses around!
tis true, and not to mention that our word to our bondholders is rock solid-to hell with the public pensioneers, bonds must be paid!!!!
I cried uncle and sold off my TBT. My brain just can't handle it anymore.
You win, again, Fed.
vHand me to the n thread.
What a joke =. Pork on Ice.
Feds r computers. Children. P..S. I'm on your side! Deadf fish s`tyle.
PS dot lost. China is stealing everything. I'm fed (PISSED)
GMT 2 makes sense.
Will someone please explain the nomenclature used here..what are direct bidders, what are indirect bidders, what is bid to cover ratio? Definitions please so I can digest, thanks in advance...
