Treasuries Fall As Bernanke Suggests Interest Rates Will Rise

Recommended Posts

June 5 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Treasuries fell after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke suggested the central bank won't pause in its two-year cycle of interest rate increases at this month's policy meeting.

Bernanke said recent increases in measures of inflation ``are unwelcome'' and he will ensure the trend isn't sustained, as part of a panel discussion with European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet and Bank of Japan Deputy Governor Toshiro Muto in Washington.

All seems to be panning out as expected - or predicted by some old hands here.

Be interesting to see the Betfair odds for UK rise in June/July/August tomorrow.

:lol::lol::lol:

Very interesting that he made this statement in front of Bank of Japan Deputy Governor and President of the ECB. These 3 banks probably make up 75% of all the worlds money supply.

Oh dear, Oh dear.

Great stuff. It's a pity we have to wait till the end of the month for the Fed decision.

At least we have the ECB this week.

I can't wait to see what happens when every Tom, Dick and Sheamus decides that it's probably time to take the profit on their BTL in Dublin.

Will it go Japanese, and slide for 15 years, or will there be the biggest property crash the world has ever seen?

Coming soon to a screen near you...

nope,it will go nuclear and the crash will be hidden by relentless reporting of the iran conflict.

If England get through the semis in the footie, I'm wondering if the July 6th MPC meeting will signal the rise in UK IRs. This will be just after the world cup second semi final (on Wed 5th July) and just before the third/fourth play offs, and final at the weekend. An excellent time to bury the news, if England get through to the final - there will be nothing else being reported.

After it's over there'll be the post party hangover of paying for the MEWed TV with some freshly hiked rates.

Failing that, definitely August IMHO...

I think there's some more juice to be squeezed out of this lemon. All you need to do it fit a bathroom with tigerskin tiles and granite rugs.

Hold on just working out the Sarah Beeny property ladder jingle on the guitar....

Or something in between? We don't know what will happen, of course, but a fairly large change seems to be on the horizon. :o
