    Insurance have to sell treasuries to pay for the hurricane damage. I'm very surprised that commodities are not moving up.

    Watching in total confusion. TLT should be tanking today when OIL and other commodities are up and market is moving to this year's top. Market rally is fake or someone knows something. If they do Tax Reform, the deficit will be out of control and treasuries will tank. There is no logic to investing anymore or there is people in the know about some calamity about to happen but treasuries is not even haven haven anymore. Anyway, TLT is a better indicator than the VIX for market direction. The Fed will start unwinding in September and TLT should move down at least 5%.

    The Long Bond and gold are among the best performers in the month of August. It’s déjà vu all over again. How many years now have we seen economic optimism flourish in the first quarter of the year, only to succumb to pessimism and deflationary pressures in the latter part of the year…

    Blistering demand in today’s 30Y Treasury auction, with indirect bidders (a proxy for foreign investors, including foreign central banks) taking down 66.8%, the second highest percentage on record. (The record of 68.5% indirects was set in July of last year, during the Brexit panic.)

    What's the yield now on the 20+ TBond? Inflation will probably exceed the rate in a few year. I can understand short term bonds for parking cash, but I don't know of any sane person who is buying long term bonds today. Watch what happens when the Fed starts unwinding in a month or two.

    Yellen said plenty and the market is being stupid again. Bank deposit rates will move higher she said. Hmm, that helps the long bond? The Feds normal balance sheet $1-2 trillion. She said by 2022 the balance sheet will be normal. That's about $4 trillion of debt which was off market being sold over the next 5 years. I see the 30 year back above 4.5% in 2018. This could quicken if Trump gets his tax cuts passed. It appears there is some profit taking today. Nothing I heard today points me in a different direction. I'd love to hear an opposing view, but as they say, they'd be fighting the fed.

    The FED is anticipating new tax laws which will stimulate the economy. They need to get away from the artificial low rates and reduce their balance sheet. Europe over the long term will raise rates. The future for the long bond is dim imo. Long bond yields will go back to pre-financial crisis levels. I am not sure where gold or stocks will be next year, but I am pretty certain rates will be a lot higher and long bonds stand to be effected the most.

    Jeff Gundlach is predicting more pain for longer term bonds (as the yield on the 10Y trends above its 200 DMA and the yield on the 30Y has just ticked above its 200 DMA, although still below the 100 DMA). Gundlach is one of a handful of bond analysts that I pay attention to, and he’s had an uncanny ability to predict short-term moves (as far back as March he was predicting that the yield on the 10Y would break below 2.25%, which we’ve seen). Per Bloomberg, he’s now reiterating his year-end call of 3% for the 10Y. That seems unlikely, as every other market would break before those levels were reached, but I also wouldn’t bet against the guy. If we see the yield on the 30Y much above 3%, I’ll once again be a buyer of the Long Bond. I wouldn’t mind another ‘Taper Tantrum” like we saw in 2H of 2013. That provided one of the best buying opportunities in history….
