What if I told you the safest (and by far the biggest) market in the world isn’t safe anymore?
The U.S. Treasury market – government bills, notes and bonds – is more than $12 trillion. That’s twice as big as the next two biggest nations’ debt securities combined – and is believed without question to be the safest market in the world.
Whenever there’s a panic and the markets freak out, investors dump stocks and buy Treasuries. That’s the so-called “flight to quality.”
However, before the recent new market highs, back on Oct. 15, when the last full-on flight to quality exploded, the U.S. Treasury market failed to do what it had always done.
It failed to be safe.
And nobody’s talking about it.
