Daneric over at http://danericselliottwaves.blogspot.com.... has some good thoughts on how the bond market 30 year rally might end. |
One thought I had today is that money market funds must be having problems with these extended zero short term rates. Many are waiving their usual fees in order to avoid "breaking the buck". But that can't go on forever, these guys are not charity workers. I don't see how you can run a money market fund and not lose money in this environment.
Unless they are doing something stupid like taking the money and putting it in higher risk investments.
