    The LMBFM is in the F-fund for the month of July. Currently, the F-fund is the best performing fund of the month at 1.17%. It is also the best fund for 2009 YTD at 3.15%.

    Below is a chart for AGG during the last 5 months. Included are the 20day EMA and MA.

    Our friendly friend AGG had a nice gap up this morning. I sure hope we get a bounce off the 15 minute 200 MA. Come join the dark side, we have better health care..

    Perhaps this gap up is a sign that money is flowing out of stocks?

    although I'm sure the PD's will say it's good for the 10-year... hope they're right (I'm F funding it for the time being)

    Gotta love the day to day tracking between AGG and the F-Fund.

    Today's results,

    AGG .18%

    F-Fund nada, zip, zero, zilch

    Last day of the month for the F-Fund, it appears to be testing the top of the trading range once again. Anyone notice this appears to be the second day both stocks and bonds are making money?

    Uncle Sam is paying a higher price for the treasury bonds in order to drive the yield down. This can't be sustainable.
    I cannot believe the yield is not going up wih the massive amount of treasuries offered this week.

    well... this isn't going to help anything...




    do they know something we don't know? favoring a strong dollar "policy" isn't the same as favoring a strong dollar...

    only around 36B of the 500Billion left for the FED...

    are there bond vigilantes at work?

    why do the big boys want to park money in zero interest for the next couple months?

    all questions, no answers... I'm suspicious though... what's new

    Me thinks the 4th quarter is going to be rough on the equity market.
    Watch the primary dealers sell back what little was purchased today to the FED within two weeks. More paper shuffling
