"... Maybe that’s why everyone is getting long the Gold chart again. As you can see in today’s Chart of The Day, they did so when the Yield Spread started to break down in 2011 too.

 

With the 10yr Yield falling another -8 basis points last week to 1.71%, the Yield Spread (10yr yield minus 2yr yield) pancaked to a fresh YTD low of 95 basis points last week. Flapjack flattening is not bullish for the Financials. It’s bullish for Utes, baby!"
