Is this the Euro all time high effect? Just day traders doing their usual irrational excess?

I believe that Leisman was expounding on this yesterday. (Just to be clear, I watch CNBC for Erin Burnett and Trish Regan, not for the financial wisdom. LOL) Anyway, he was talking about 10 year imbalances will drive the 10 year yield up, while the 6 month yield will be driven down. I believe he predicted the 2 year to remain about the same.

But, there is also a lot of chatter about the double whammy of USD inflation vs everyone else and the lessening of uncertainty driving rates up.

And, Saudi Arabia which has its currency pegged to the USD didn't lower rates; causing some to speculate that oil is going to start edging away from the dollar.

Hmm, that's not very coherent, but I'm pressing the enter key, anyway. :)
