June 23 (Bloomberg) -- Treasury 30-year bonds rose the most in a week on speculation the end of the Federal Reserve’s $600 billion debt-purchase program this month will depress commodity prices and slow inflation..../
“Inflation expectations are coming down, and that will put downward pressure on yields,” said Yoshiyuki Suzuki, Tokyo- based head of fixed income at Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance Co., which has the equivalent of $69.6 billion in assets. “Commodity prices have peaked with the end of QE2.” Fukoku bought Treasuries a few weeks ago, Suzuki said.

Japanese 10-year bonds yields dropped 1.5 basis points to 1.105 percent, matching the least since November. The Ministry of Finance sold 2.425 trillion yen ($30.5 billion) of two-year notes today at an average yield of 0.152 percent,

Give it a rest ffs.

Not getting a rise in rates is not the same as deflation. It is just no increase in the inflation that already exists.

Speak to the FT about it and that nice Japanese Gentleman with the rude name--they published the story. And the FT don't usually publish a lot of nonsense and the bond market does tend toward accuracy as a predictor of what is coming down the road.

Gone long on metally inflation hedges by any chance? ;)

Metals do better in times of low real inflation anyway, or have you to busy linking articles over the last 3 years to notice?

The bond market misses absolutely everything of importance.

It certainly misses inflation every single time, but it's also failed to spot such small things as looming world wars, mass terrorism, global trends such as computing etc etc

Bond are safety investments for people who can't think straight and don't notice they always lose money.
