Impending CRASH - 10-year Treasury Note at lowest level since 1871!
.

The lead paragraph in CNBC's story is wrong.

This is the LOWEST interest rate for the US 10-Year Bond in its entire history!

The benchmark U.S. Treasury yield fell to its lowest level in at least 60 years on Wednesday
as worries of contagion from Spain's ailing banks raised bids for low-risk investments.

Yields on 10-year notes sank to a record low of 1.62 percent, down sharply from 1.73 percent
in late U.S trading on Tuesday.

The 30-year bond yield fell to 2.71 percent, its lowest level since October, and down from
a yield of 2.84 percent in late U.S. trade on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the European Commission advocated direct aid from a euro zone rescue fund
to recapitalize distressed banks in an effort that could eventually help Spain.

Spain's financial woes, rising Italian borrowing costs and uncertainties over the Greek
national election in June, sent investors into cash, Treasurys and German Bunds from
stocks and other riskier assets.

Those billionaires out there are NOT going to invest $$ in the
US with this kind of yield! Wait for inflation on the other end!

Someone explain bonds and yields to the lay people...

If you buy a ten year bond, do you actually hold it for ten years?
 Quoting: Walking Eagle


Not if you sell it on the bond market.

When interest rates go down, the price of bonds go up, because older bonds already on the market pay higher interest rates than the current ones and are therefore worth more.

People with money are buying hard assets. Everyone in the world, excluding the U.S., knows the US dollar is only going to be used to wipe your butt with. The USD is done. It was always a big pyramid scheme orchastrated by some very evil and greedy people and faciliated by the same ilk. It is over and they know it but they don't know WTF to do other than attack countries with assets and no debt to them.
