TREASURY BUBBLE WATCH….Is the appetite for treasury bonds with minuscule yields finally waning? The Wall Street Journal reports:
Time and again the U.S. Treasurys market has escaped the correction many believe is inevitable for a market that is so buoyant, it could be mistaken for a bubble. This week, it may not be so fortunate.
Prices of government bonds started to fall Friday, ahead of the vote by the House of Representatives that approved the $789.5 billion stimulus package. This decline could be the beginning of the capitulation the market has been bracing for since the administration of President Barack Obama took over, with promises of a recession-era boom in government spending.
Personally, I wouldn’t read too much into this. But it’s something worth keeping an eye on. The treasury bubble is going to pop eventually.
