The Bond Dream Room

Post by Reub » Wed May 28, 2014 4:47 pm

With the seeming popularity of the Gold Scream Room, I thought that I'd start a bond alternative with a positive twist. TLT up 12% so far this year! Yeaah! :)

It feels like I have to knock on wood in this room. It's the power of loss aversion that makes the Gold Scream Room such a nice place to go and vent. BTW, Reub, I love what you've done to this place.

A great thread title! 

Who would have thought bonds would be ruling the roost this year.  I thought rates had nowhere to go but up.

I always though the gold scream room was for up AND down - like a roller coaster.  Basically higher volatility in gold.
