More on that Treasury Blood Bath

Just about a month ago when everyone was calling the end of the 30 year bond rally, I noted.
While any sell-off has the potential to become the large sell-off EVERYONE has been waiting for (economic data is improving, yields are very low, inflation is ticking higher), I am not yet convinced it's the sure thing these "experts" want you to believe.

But, I guess if you keep making the same prediction, eventually it will come true.
Apparently, we need to keep waiting.

A weak (and deteriorating) Europe, low inflation, low growth, an uptick in risk-asset volatility, and continued piling into the asset class by investors (mutual fund flows remain positive), businesses (looking for yield on cash), and government entities (QE) have not only supported the asset class, but made it one of the top performing asset classes month-to-date.
