2013: S&P 500 +28%, US Treasury Curve Unchanged
While both stock and bond markets are "influenced" by the ongoing flood of central bank liquidity, it is clear that the two "markets" have a very different view of the future. The last few days have seen the longer-term bond term structure (perhaps indicative of future growth hopes) collapse and are now unchanged on the year. Of course, the "taper" has been seen as nothing but great news by stocks which have pushed on to a 28% gain on the year... Which "efficient" market is discounting the future correctly we wonder?
