Something is rotten in the U.S. bond market, which is irritating the stock market, to say, the very least.
Today’s 3.29 percent flop in the S&P500, coupled with a 1.7 bps rise in the 10-year yield, is very rare, and has only happened this century in the midst of a major stock market crash.
The S&P500 has declined 3 percent or more in just 1.42 percent (68) of the 4,781 trading days since October 1999, and the 10-yield has risen more than 1.5 bps during those 3 percent + drops in just 0.17 percent of the (8) trading days since October 1999.
No flight to “quality” as stocks have tanked, even with the record short in 10-year futures at an all-time high. Bonds should have rocked on today’s 800 point decline in Dow Jones Come on, man!
