Re: Perpetual

Still holding too, down 50% too.

Re: Global Bond Yields

If rates go up, even moderately, you could lose a hefty sum on long term bonds too. A 100 bpp raise would hurt quite a bit if you're holding 10 years 2.3% federal bonds. You could keep them to maturity, but then you've held them longer then most [more]

Re: $50 BILLION AND COUNTING!
