Interest Rate Roundup

Thursday, May 29, 2008

It's Thursday. Have you sold your bonds today?

Well, someone certainly is -- the long bond futures are getting pummeled by another 23/32 today. We've broken the uptrend that dates back to last summer, and the 200-day moving average, as you can see in the chart above. Ten-year yields have broken out to the upside, and were recently at 4.08%.


  • Mike, so people are selling long bonds and re-investing their capital... where? Commodities? (Doesn't seem likely - commodity prices are not rising - oh wait - oil rebounding on inventories report.) Domestic stocks? International stocks?

    I admit to being completely clueless about bond market fluctuations and their potential consequences on equity and commodity prices. Can you shed some light?

    Great blog - thanks for all your efforts.
