TREASURIES - THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

 

No not a GIFT to the bond holder - Its a GIFT to the BORROWER the US Government!!!!!!!!!!!

 

At 2% interest with 2% inflation and 0.5 tax you are giving away 5% of you capital whenever you buy a new 10 year bond.

 

And yet people are still buying them all the time!!!!!

 

Bond need to pay 3% to compensate for inflation and tax and that is with a NIL return for the time value of money,

 

Add in a decent 3% return for the time value of money and 10 year bonds should be returning 6%.

I don't think that most of the buyers are "people" per se.

The dealers are still buying, but they're getting less long in the futures. Almost short. They're still long, but moving toward a hedged position. Still, they are not prepared if this goes against them. There will be big losses, and that will exacerbate any price decline/yield rise.

What do you think the Open Market Committee had for lunch today? I think they should have had a 3 day meeting this time.

They're working on coming up with more euphemisms for "tightening."
