Please reconcile your opinion that no one will buy 30 year bonds with the fact that a record amount of these bonds were sold recently.

NYT - Coronavirus Cases Spike Across Sun Belt as Economy Lurches into Motion

Quote
Arizona, Texas and Florida are reporting their highest case numbers yet. As of Saturday, coronavirus cases were climbing in 22 states amid reopenings.
.
The warning has echoed ominously for weeks from epidemiologists, small-town mayors and county health officials: Once states begin to reopen, a surge in coronavirus cases will follow.

That scenario is now playing out in states across the country, particularly in the Sun Belt and the West, as thousands of Americans have been sickened by the virus in new and alarming outbreaks.

Already is....   but this is what happens when you base policy on hoping the pandemic misses your area.  The mass protests are going to kill people from spreading the virus as well.

The boy who cried wolf ended up getting eaten by the wolf.
He was asking for it I guess.  It's been a long time since I read it.

While I think it's hilarious that one of the strident "you're killing grandma!" people here has been defending the mass rule-breaking at protests, the truth is that it is indeed pretty much a big nothing.  Neither the George Floyd protests nor the infamous Trinity Bellwoods Park incident have made a noticeable difference. Transmission outdoors in fresh air and sunlight is unlikely.

On the other hand... get 18,000 yelling Trumptards jammed into an arena in close proximity breathing the same recirculated air, it's going to be a disaster.  Just 2 more days to the Superbowl of Stupidity!

That's what they'll be for at least 30 years, because that's what the bonds will be locked in at.

If you buy 30 year bonds.  They sell bonds at many different lengths.

Do you have a link on that?

What I do know is that Canada 30-year bonds are selling at record-low yields.  Which means they've never been worth so little.

 ;D Trump says "it's dying out"! Meanwhile... in the US, Florida, Texas and Arizona saw their highest single-day increases in new Covid-19 cases. New projections say Florida has "all the markings of the next large epicenter."

Fitting for this thread, I thought I'd share a powerful video from The Lincoln Project.  Gave me goose bumps.
