Treasury Bond Auction - Worried?

According to Reuters, the 5 year Treasury Bond Auction on Thursday was very weak.

Anybody worried, or is it just because everyone expects rates to be raised? Inverted yield curve a precursor to market drop?

Also anyone heard of Iran's Oil Bourse opening in March and potential impact on markets due to oil trade in Euro's versus Dollars

Duh, its hard to sell bonds when rates keep steadily rising - go figure. As for the Iranian thing, its nothing more than a politically-oriented move that will go nowhere. We are more likely to see oil sold in RMB or rupees than Euros.

F-One, you're gonna have to introduce yourself to Greg "Apocalypse Soon", Martha's spouse, just as soon as she lets him out of the basement. You guys could form your own gloom & doom club...

Yeah I'm a glass half-empty guy. But I always hope for better , I guess I shouldn't be reading books like "The Coming generational Storm" by Kotlikoff

I haven't found any reason to read it either, nor have I read any of Harry Dent's books...
