Inflation? Deflation?

Treasury Real Yield at 16-Month High on Inflation Bet

Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- For the first time since 2007, Treasury investors are betting that inflation will accelerate. The yield on 10-year notes exceeds the consumer price index by 2.72 percentage points, the most since December 2006. The gap between two- and 10-year rates widened at the fastest pace in a year last month as traders demanded more compensation for longer-term debt. Treasury Inflation Protected Securities that signaled falling prices as recently as Nov. 20 show they will increase in the U.S. this year.

One thought on “Inflation? Deflation?

  • Inflation will tear this economy apart sooner than everybody expects in my opinion.

    Just wait for Gordon to start talking about the pound in your pocket. At least all the demonstrating workers will get their wish and become employed when their foreign lords realise that they are cheap as chips verses the Euro/yen etc.
