What Are the Bond/Debt/Credit Markets Telling Us?

This chart shows the US 10-year treasury futures for the past 15 months. The steady rise is one that depicts worry -- lots of it! Savvy investors buy bonds as a place of refuge when they're worried. The huge spike at the far right suggests that big money investors are gravely concerned about the safety of their money. That's why they buy what they view as a "safe bet" investment.

The message here? Be afraid! Be very, very afraid!
