Heh, I doubt the wiccans would be amused. Lumping them in with the technicians is guilt by association.

No, no, no. You don't have to explain anything. Just look at the red line on the chart; it explains everything!

I'm still waiting for something other than a pretty picture that supports your statement that long yiekds must always be above short yields. I know they say a picture is worth a thousand words, but not in this case.

"other things being equal" we would expect long yields to exceed short yields, due to, if from nothing else, increased uncertainty/risk with time ... but there are, at the extreme, two ways to getting there from here ... only one of which involves increasing longer term yields.

Im sorry.............I don't respond to charts.........

I used to be on video conference calls at 7:30am with our analysts to show us the "hot buys"..........they used a lot of charts too, and those stocks never made a lick of money for any clients..............

Of course Fama, etc. will tell you that this isn't going to help either!

.........................................no you have sheeple on this board. Talking heads are saying buy stocks because bond yields are going to fall...and they vomit that same crap on here. Listen to Mr Guru...just do not ask him a question that goes against what he says or see the witty personal attacks start. Of course that never answers the question.

But I am on the right side of the trade. Which is why I am not a working stiff working for someone else.

Hey, common sense does not equal fundementals. :

But I guess fundementals are taking interest rate risk with a smile.

Again, I ask: any particular reason besides "the pretty picture told me so" why you think long yields must be above short yields?

I note that the yield curve is still inverted.

Re: Where to put 100K

If I knew remotely anything about what any of you we're talking about I'd make a comment. As it stands now, I just sit back and read.......reread.......read again......get a headache, then keep my mouth shut.

Until sometime next year, I'm still a newbie.

Your observation indicates that you're no longer a newbie!

If Bernstein's "Four Pillars" isn't doing it for you, have you tried Frank Armstrong or the BogleHead Guide to Investing?
