Fast And Furious In The Global Bond Market

Ugly price action in the global bond markets.  That was fast!

What the yield curve does signal, at least to us,  is that there is a massive global bond bubble and that central banks have lost control of their curves, which kind of scares the bejeesus out of us when we start to think about it. — GMM,  August 15th

For months, the world watched in stunned amazement as, alongside the relentless increase in global negative yielding debt which more than doubled in 2019 from $8 trillion to $17 trillion, the Austrian century bond due 2117 exploded higher and almost doubled in price from just above par to an all time high of 220 in late August.

What a different just a few weeks – and a smattering of good news – makes the euphoria is now officially over and as 10Y Treasury yields surge to 1.90% from a record low of 1.42% on September 3, now that downward momentum has been broken and CTAs are accelerating in the other direction, the Austrian century bond is doing what its Argentina peer did last month: it is tumbling, and as of the close of trading in Europe was down over 20%, officially entering a bear market.  — Zero Hedge
