“The last shall be first and the first last.” That was the story for markets through Tuesday, as value posted record outperformance versus growth thanks to Monday's vaccine news from Pfizer.

    Lower resistance is like 137. No way it’s going to test this before we’re post COVID. Maybe not even while we are still in the existing monetary regime.

    The Treasury has already telegraphed that they are going to move from short term to longer term bonds to fund measures.

    There is no ambiguity in Fed policy.

    A reasonably high probability outcome for the next six months is COVID, businesses close, employment suffers, income suffers, lackluster stimulus, Fed jawbone or purchases creates YCC, Treasury sells long bonds, government funded using 20 and 30 years, checks go out.

    What remains is what’s the level of rates where the Fed and Treasury have had enough. When the Treasury wants to fund with the longer bond, and they can fund at 0.6% instead of 1.0%, rates are going to move and they’re going to fund at the lower rate. And, it’s kind of in our nation’s collective interest any longer to want them fund at 0.6% rather than 1.0%.
