Just two quick notes....you can no longer sell bonds in TreasuryDirect. So, for me anyways, treasurydirect is not so great. You can buy them and transfer them to a broker account for selling if needed, but I found it to be a pain.
And just glanced through an interesting bullish opinion on treasuries.
The 10-year is presently yielding quite a bit more than other developed countries' 10-year bonds. A graph showing yield of Germany 10-yr yield minus US treas 10-year yield shows a bottom.
The article considers the $ to be stable.
I just thought it was interesting. I'm not going to run out and buy a bunch of 10-year notes...but I'm sure not going to short them, either.
