I'm not a bond person but somewhere else the view was that only treasuries are viewed as safe havens during times like this, corporate bonds and municipals tend to get fairly hard.

People have been stretching to get yields and often see bigger yields in corporate bonds/funds and/or funds that have a mixture (i.e., BND). Those haven't done well.

Today it didn't matter much:
long term treasuries - Down
short term treasuries - Up, barely
Gold - Down
stocks - Don't ask.

over last 6 months VGLT +14, BND +1 (not exactly a great comparison since one is long term and the other the entire market for the most part)

People who are selling are going to cash or treasuries although today it seems like it went to cash?

(Not sure if that was your question.)
