Sorry, I will try to be clearer (and maybe even spell properly, which is a strech for me).

People buying treasuries isn't a sign that this stock bull will continue. If people are buying treasuries at these yields, what does that say about their expectations of returns from other investments in the future? Not much.

If we follow the path into the K-winter, we are going to be looking at deflation. Take a look at Japan. They were offering government bonds paying 0.05%. 4% treasuries look pretty good compared to that.

Maybe these buyers see whats coming.
