P.S. also -
'The Highest-Yielding Treasury Bond Isn’t Declining Like Its Peers'
The yield on the 30-year bond has been relatively stable, weighed down by doubts about a long-term pickup in inflation

No fun. I keep listening to podcasts where the speakers talk about a world where bonds and stocks aren't anti-correlated... where they go down together. These thoughts don't make me happy. The more I think about it, the more I think about gold and cash.

Cash is going up! It never feels good, though.

You may be correct that gold is under-valued at the moment, but how can you tell?


It is a couple of years off a major bottom and has been rising slowly and erratically for those years. There is no enthusiasm for it in the financial media.

Also, buddtholomew hates it.

But that last one may be permanent and thus would not have any predictive value. :D

Who knows? But I doubt it has any significant influence. The markets for the two assets are too different, in my opinion anyway.
