10Y Treasury Yield Drops Back Below 2.5%

Tyler Durden's picture

As US equities put in their ubiquitous v-shaped recovery from any opening weakness, Treasury yields are pushing the lows of the day. 10Y Yields are back below 2.5% - the lowest in 7 weeks. AUDJPY is fully in charge of equity levitation today so far (though Russell 2000 and Biotech names mostly are notably lower and not bouncing as exuberantly as Trannies and the Dow).

10Y yields drop to fresh lows under 2.5%


As AUDJPY lifts stocks magically...

Can't wait for the headline, "10Y Treasury Yield Drops Back Below 0.0%."

Remember when interest rates used to reflect the time value of money?

Yeah, me neither.

Well, I for one remember 8% CDs.  Sorry you missed that, good times...


Any inflation without WAGE inflation is the kiss of death for any economy.


Now consider that statement while looking at the current velocity of money, scary shit.

"Any inflation without WAGE inflation is the kiss of death for any economy."

Without the inflation of counterfeit, there could be an inflation of productive work and therefore no inflation of wages woud be necessary since there would instead be an increased purchasing power of those wages.

You speak of nonsense.  Fiat Fucking Fantasy is Fantastic. /sarc

Fiat currency is stolen property.  Plain and simple - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D96HjDbTs1s

Correct, more bullshit paper script/promises will only make things much, much worse in an exponential fashion.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Bullshit.  This not the 70's.  There is no increase or inflation of productive work (creating more financial "products" of no real value is not productive work asshat) without an increase in the calories available for consumption.

7+ billion (and growing) all competing for a better quality of life and the available calories that make that possible.  Unless those unfunded liabilities are decreased, the standard of living for humanity (but especially Americans) has only one direction to go.

Anybody with a house can play the same game the FIs are - refinance or get a big-ass HELOC, and lever up in the market!  Of course, they get inside info, and if they fuck up, the government will make them whole, whereas if you fuck up, well, capitalist discipline for you, but other than that different risk profile, it's the same game - level playing field!

Stay calm, the Philly Fed "survey" is on the way to save the day.  Aaah, it must be good to be a banker and have them FED people behind you all the way...

madbraz's picture

Thank you, Philly Fed.  So nice to know that you are just one phone call away...

madbraz's picture

I am coming to an undisputed conclusion that all surveys and economic data printed are just means to achieve the goal of a certain algo/HFT's owners.  By now it is just too obvious.


The levels of corruption are probably higher than they were in the 1920s.

It could be that people creating these summaries are just measuring worthless data.   But the expression "Generals always fight the last war" applies to almost everything.

First the FED will orchestrate the economic deflationary collapse then step in, once again, to save the day with a 'PRINT' that will echo around the world

Go ahead, raise rates bitch, I double dog dare you...

Like Japan we will be below 1% before this is all over with. Open that MyRa and load up now bitchez!

Over?...there is no over...this is a toilet bowl econmy. That sucking sounds isn't your imagination. 

Dr. Engali's picture

Yes there will be an over. When? I have no idea, but math never lies. With 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities the system will collapse.

NOTaREALmerican's picture

Like General Patton said:  let the enemy worry about your liabilities.

I'll notify my Granny she's gotta switch back to Alpo next quarter.

Dr. Engali's picture

Alpo? She's lucky eating that there gourmet food.

NoDebt's picture

Well, in the 2.75-ish range she upgrades to Friskies Gourmet Cat Dinner, but when yields fall below 2.5 she's gotta switch back to dog food.

You ever tasted cat food?  It's not half bad.  Almost like people food.  You'll see what I mean some day.

Grande Tetons's picture

I am giving my Granny a half and half mixture of Alpo and sawdust. She seems ok with it. 


NoDebt's picture

It's good for you.  Granny says it's got lots of "roughage" in it.  That's old-people-speak for fiber.

if only i could be sure the alpo mix was not gmo...

My Gramama, who lived through the Great Depression, lived off of hotdogs well into her 80s.  My family down south, who robbed and pillaged (living in huge mansions in on the ICW in South Florida, Arizona, and Ohio.  Jaguars out the ass, etc) from their IPO for years while never producing or selling product number 1, were aghast at her eating habits.  She wasn't a thief and paid the price of honesty and morality.  The realities of being frugal in her eating was ingrained in her at a young age after seeing the desperation of banker induced scarcity, while the IPO pirates lived like kings.  I've seen both sides of these atrocities.

At the end of the day, Clara (Great Depression Cooking on YouTube) will be a star as the people will eventually have to turn away from sports and Kim K's ass and titties and actually learn something that will be forced upon them.  So sad.

Clara is great though - https://www.youtube.com/user/DepressionCooking

https://shine.yahoo.com/im-saving-money-cooking-great-depression-1738000... Back in 2001 when I still had a full household of kids, my monthly grocery expenses per person was a mere $105. Last year, our costs averaged out to $242 a month per person. Although economists assure us that food prices haven't risen much in the past decade (see chart at businessinsider.com) my old budget tells an entirely different story. I might not understand New Math, but even I can see that these numbers reflect an 113% increase in price over the past 10 years.

Trying to make sense of the world with inter-market correlations is a dangerous game.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Do not try and predict the "market" moves, that's impossible, only try and recognize the truth, that there is no market for true price discovery.

Is there a cat-food vs 10y graph some place?    I'm thinking there might be some arbitrage opportunists here.

If I were a foreign entity planning to screw the US, I'd be buying enough treasuries to dump them all at once when they least expect it.  Sure, I might take a loss,  


But the US would be crushed.

That is why the Fed, is and must buy all of the new issuance, period. (via Belgium or otherwise)
