Bill Gross Says ‘Bonds, Like Men, Are In A Bear Market’, Endorses Oprah, Says He’ll Put The Toilet Seat Down If He Needs To
Earlier this week, Bill Gross called it as 10-year yields hit 9-month highs on supply jitters and an overnight decision by the BoJ to cut purchases of 10-25Y JGBs: Well, that was looking pretty prescient come Wednesday morning when Bloomberg broke the story that China is apparently pondering a halt to U.S. Treasury purchases.

It won’t be bullets that takes down Amerika it will be our own hubris.
