There Are No Inflation Fears In Long Term Bonds

EDITOR'S NOTE: There are numbers and trends that point to long-term inflation fears everywhere you look these days. However, Mish Talk reports the one place you don’t see this is in the long-term bond market where “yield on the 30-year long bond peaked at 2.45% on March 18, 2021. Now it's 1.88%.” While this might sound good, Mish Talk worries that these numbers are leading to an “autopilot” strategy from the Fed. The issue with this is the result will be that “the Fed is going to hike the US economy into a recession.” This is yet another example of the Fed being caught in a difficult situation and, by not dealing well with any of it, there could be major economic problems on the way.
