""Historically a flat or inverted yield curve is bad news for the market but I don't think that is the case this time," said Stine. "Buying of Treasuries won't go away when the Fed stops raising rates. The long-end going down just reflects demand for long-term bonds."
Haven't we heard that before?
It would not be the first time the impact of the Baby Boom impacted
the "historic norms" in the market. There should be an increase in
demand for fixed-income investments over the coming decade(s) as
the "equity" -driven investors adjust to a greater proportion of
bonds in their portfolios.
To every thing there is a season.
And every bubble has its day - or couple years.
