#GrowthSlowing: Did You Miss The Move?

Takeaway: Global 10-year sovereign bond yields are down across the board this morning.

I see plenty of email traffic (after the move) on the recent backup in yields, but will I get any emails this morning on the same as 10-year Yields around the world A) fail @Hedgeye TREND resistance and B) fall in unison as Global #GrowthSlowing data continues? UK 10yr -6bps to 0.52%.

 

But, but… “they’re expensive” (Old Wall PM speak for I didn’t and don’t own them) and “eventually” the bubble in bonds “has to pop” (but in “stocks”, never – always room to go higher)…

 

That’s what’s been filling up my inbox for the past few weeks. And that’s primarily because long-term bond yields, globally, bounced off their all-time lows. The widely watched widow-maker (for Long Bond Bears) – Japanese Government Bonds – sold off 22 basis points!

 

So if you nailed it (instead of being nailed for the last year shorting “expensive” bonds and their proxies) and shorted JGBs, Bunds, and Treasuries at the all-time lows in yields, I say you book those gains before the Gold Bond Bulls run you over.
