a short-term buying opportunity until year's end.
TLT price action still looks frothy on the daily chart.

A Daytrade For A Change!

Expiration-week days can exhibit intense intraday rallies...
Treas. prices (i.e. TLT) are creeping up.

Bonds Playing Wait-And-See...

Bonds are treading water.
It seems that when the bickering in DC comes to an end

in October. Beware: Rallies usually start following gapdowns at the open...

Difference Between Investors And Lemmings?

Stimulated by never-ending media hype, 
retail investors (tipically long-only) feel the urge to google "Noriel Roubini" 
(aka, Dr. Doom) whenever equities start melting down. Hilarious, isn't it?

In this respect there is no difference between human beings and lemmings.
