The Great Bloodbath Has Arrived

The stock market is now in very serious trouble.

The bond market is NOT calming down. Last week the yield on the all-important 10-Year U.S. Treasury (the most important bond in the world) spiked to new highs for this bull run.

Why does this matter?

Because the yield on this bond represents the “risk-free” rate of return against which all risk assets are priced. Every move higher in this yield means risk assets (including stocks) will be priced lower.

Put another way, until the bond market calms down ALL BETS ARE OFF for stocks. This is why the S&P 500 took out critical support last week.
