New lows for the yield curve

There are times when the investor should ignore the unaccountable pundits on CNBC and elsewhere who’ll have you confused as a goat on astroturf.  An investment thesis can be developed simply from a chart that shows the long term direction of an asset and that history typically repeats itself.   As investment managers we ignore the pundits and look for the classical signs of economic expansion or contraction. This morning we are happy beneficiaries of significant strength in Treasury bonds.   What should also be noted is this morning marks a milestone as the yield curve is breaking the 2008 lows both in the 10y minus 2y and the 30y minus the 1y.
