This summer offered investors an epic buying opportunity to get long Long Bonds.
As our subscribers are well aware, we've been warning on global growth slowing and urging investors to get long via TLT and other related vehicles for some time now. It was a non-consenus call when we first made it and we’re sticking with it.

Make no mistake, our recent macro calls — #Deflation, #GrowthSlowing, #LowerForLonger and one of our newest ... #SuperLateCycle — have been spot on. Is it possible that Old Wall consensus is warming up to our thinking?
Look no further than a slew of media stories yesterday. CNBC, Bloomberg, and a host of others are featuring front-page stories on themes our macro team has been warning about for some time now.

But thanks for the update Jon.
As for us, we'll stick with our #LowerForLonger call.
