I don't know what you can read into this, if anything. Although most people have little money to save and invest, those that do have have more than ever before, and they know better than just to buy stocks. On top of that, there's all that foreign (Asian) money that has to go somewhere, and so far it has continued to flow into the US, especially treasuries. Interest rates (market based) aren't going to go up as long as there is enough money willing to buy US Treasuries. The question is how long treasuries will be considered the safest place to put money for the available return? Maybe indefinitely. I doubt it.
