OF HUMAN BONDAGE- GOVERNMENT NOTE MARKETPLACES © Leo Haviland, April 9, 2012

Recent patterns in key government interest rate marketplaces warn that the worldwide economic crisis remains far from over.

Since around mid-March 2012, compare the trend of falling rates in government notes (10 year) of “flight to quality”/”safe haven” nations such as the USA, Germany, and Japan (and even the UK) with that of rising yields in several other European nations (not just Italy and Spain).

Note this rate pattern in government debt instruments alongside the recent high in the S+P 500 at 4/2/12 at 1422 as well as related weakness in commodities “in general”. See “The Worldwide Economic Growth Story: Chinese and Indian Stocks Alongside Commodities” (4/2/12).
