« Up 62% in 9 Months | Main | US Dollar Index Breaks Downtrend »



"...today's lousy 30-year auction is an indication that investors aren't too keen on locking up their funds in long-term IOUs from Uncle Sam right now."

Ummm... what? 4.52% is still lower than the rate's been at any time in the last four years. And, in the last year and half, the U.S. Treasury has increased the supply of Treasury bonds held by the public by $2.5 trillion, without moving the needle at all on either the real or nominal interest rates it has to pay.

If investors aren't too keen on locking up their money in a 30-year Uncle Sam IOU, then what do you call all the people buying the treasuries? Financers? Lenders?
