When this moves back up, the USA budget will detonate almost overnight.|
Housing will go from the current robust recovery (/sarc) of 400,000 new starts, to something apocalyptic like 100,000 starts. Everyone's house will drop another 20% or more, and worst of all the interest service on the debt/deficit will go from $300bn to $1,000bn as most paper is very short duration and constantly rolled on the short end. 1.7% to 5 or 6% and the entire thing blows up.
What could go wrong?
This drop, and at this point I assume everyone here at TF knows this, is due to Europe fleeing to safety and buying up US T's along with Benny monetising.
