Why Bonds are Poised to Gain

Why Bonds are Poised to Gain

(New York)

There has been a lot of fear about bonds lately. Higher inflation readings, a more hawkish Fed, and 3% Treasury yields have gotten investors nervous. However, bonds might be in for some big gains, especially Treasuries. The reason why is that there is a huge pile of short positons held by hedge funds who are betting against Treasuries. Yet, yields have been stubborn over the last couple of weeks and now it appears the positon might be broken by a strong short squeeze that would send prices higher.

FINSUM : We had not paid much attention to this, but given the weak US inflation reading that has just been released, this may play out very soon.
