Bond market update: deep drawdowns, broken models, real yields, Japanese, Chinese, Fed policy, macro risks, economist forecasts, and long-term mean reversion...
Great set of charts. Thanks.
One comment. 40 years of bull market for bonds (yes there were a few hiccups and also for equities) seems to have come to an end. While bond shorts are at extreme and we may get a short term correction, I somehow doubt we stay at the average for too long. Usually when the pendulum swings back, it doesn’t stop at the mid point.
Great nuggets as usual. That last point on us reframing away from higher for longer to accepting that this might just be us getting back to normal is not to be underestimated. Kind of makes me wonder (and scary thought at that) of what happens when something eventually breaks and the Fed Put is gone for real. I don’t think people are taking risks with that as part of the possible scenarios.
Great issue, thanks for sharing your work
Thanks for the hat tip!
Such a good edition, had to share it.
