and treasury note prices rose today:
" Treasuries got a boost from lackluster data Tuesday. The Conference Board’s consumer-confidence index fell for the third consecutive month in November, hitting 70.4, its lowest level since April. Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected a reading of 72.4. "
Consumer Confidence statistics notwithstanding, WMC is rising as much as it fell the day before it appears the reason for REITs rising and falling has little to do with the CC measurements and more to do with fear and greed.
