The Bond Bull Market: Coming To An End?

The bond bull market has been going on for 35 years. It started, the bottom was on September 1981, so it has been going on for over 34 years now. And yes, it is coming to an end. You may have government bonds go higher for a while just as panic takes place. I am short junk bonds in the United States and you are right, they are going down now, some more than others obviously.

We are making a top in interest rates but that does not mean that if and when the Federal Reserve panics again that interest rates will not go down some more. But we are making the top. Not sure about sovereigns because I expect so much panic that many people will pile into them as they are piling into the U.S. Dollar.
