Why Long Term Rates Will Peak This Year

Chris Temple made the comment last week that long term rates will peak in 2018. With the 10 year now slightly over 2.9% and a huge number of treasuries being sold this week Chris outlines the many reasons why he thinks later this year yields will turn back down. We also discuss how to position your portfolio for this change in the direction of yields.

    I wonder if were getting the “final” washout.

      A lot could happen before the summer. Take a look at what happened in 2006. A repeat (which I am not predicting) would take gold 30% higher by the first half of May:

        Gold has been great which is why silver now looks much more appealing. When the turn comes and we finally get a break out for gold, silver is going to blow gold away.

            Yes, not bad at all. Your upside would be far greater than your downside.

            I’m interested in Silver for just these reasons, as when it gets moving it will far perform Gold on a percentage basis, and it is unlikely to stay over 80:1 for an extended period of time and will be reverting more to the mean.

            When we start seeing that kind of catch up action in Silver, then the Silver miners will really go on a tear, and that is where some serious profits will be made over the next 1-2 years.

        Haha Jerry I agree. Silver watching is akin to watching paint dry. At least watching paint dry is boring at worst. Whereas silver can be depressing. Try not to watch everyday I suppose. Higher prices will eventuate. When is the big question?

        • On February 20, 2018 at 6:44 pm,
          Excelsior says:

          Silver has been like watching paint dry, but the only constant is change, and this is the exact reason why when an asset class like Silver, or Uranium, starts to move it leaves investors with recency bias in the dust. We saw it with Lithium, with Zinc, with Cobalt, and we saw it with Silver in 2016 and again in early 2017.

          When it moves…. it moves….. and the time to accumulate is when it is boring or trending down, especially when so many technicians looking at longer term charts look to later 2018 and 2019 as positive for Gold. What is good for Gold is great for Silver.

    Mueller Expands his Investigation Desperate to Bring Down Trump

    Posted Feb 21, 2018 by Martin Armstrong

    CNN is ecstatic. Mueller cannot prove any connection between Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Russia, so now he is turning to investigate if he solicited China or Qatar to invest any money in his company during the campaign.

        Would have flipped a long time ago..? Flipped to who?! Obama, Bush, Clinton?? I don’t think so… The deep state using the mockingbird media can destroy anyone (until Trump got elected).

          Flipped, ……turned his patriotism to , maybe Ron Paul….and the IRS investigation of the Teaparty….

    Great comments Chris, and I share your fondness of some of the REITs sector. I have been in this area for the past few years, and they have both provided solid yields and capital gains (although some of the valuations are beginning to get a little stretched especially when trusts start trading at premiums to NAV again I’m talking from European perspective. Don’t know what’s happening in the US re: REITS.
