Rising Interest Rates: Is the Bond Bubble Popping?

Updated 12/28/2010

Interest rates are up more than 1% in the last month on both long and short term bonds, pushing mortgage rates up and bond prices down. Is the bond bubble popping? We see two possible scenarios: Either investors believe that the economy is finally turning around and therefore higher demand for credit will drive up interest rates; or investors are beginning to worry that inflation is on its way due to massive money printing by the Fed (QE1 and QE2), and the bond bubble is about to pop.

We think the first scenario is more likely. If so, the euphoric feeling won’t last and interest rates will eventually decline. More importantly, we think the Fed will buy even more bonds to keep interest rates from rising much further. However, it is also possible that the Fed is starting to lose control over interest rates due to growing inflation expectations among investors and rising perceived risk in federal government debt. We know this will happen eventually, the only question is when. One reason we don’t think it is happening now is that if inflation expectations were rising rapidly, we would see gold rising as well, which is not currently happening.

So is the bond bubble starting to pop? We will know in the next month or two. Please sign up now for your Aftershock Investors Resource Package so we can tell you more about bonds, stocks, gold, currencies, real estate, the dollar, China, European debt, popping bubbles, and other Aftershock issues.
