Bernanke Signals No New Bond Buying And Treasury Price Down

Recommended Posts

My thought would be that the bond rally was simply caused by speculators hoping that Fed will pay even higher prices to take the paper off their hands.

Got quite a few talks recently that the US Treasury prices signal deflation. If so, the bonds should have rallied today when Ben announce that there is no imminent QE2 as we will all in a decade of deflationary bust and traders should all jump into buying the delicious 2%-3% yield

US treasuries EXCEPT that they don't. They sell the bonds off when the supposedly 'greater fool' signals that he is not buying..

NEW YORK, Aug 27 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasuries prices fell sharply on Friday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke signaled no new bond buying by the U.S. central bank was imminent, triggering the biggest sell-off in three months.
