A quick look at the March 2009 bottom versus our current position at the end of 2011. Note how the inverse correlation between bonds and equities started to crumble in the three months before the S&P 500 market bottom. $TLT topped 3 months before equities (just one more piece of evidence that equities are the last to know after bonds, currencies, and futures). If history is to repeat in this 2011 Euro crisis then we’d expect the inverse correlation bond/equity to also start to falter, something that hasn’t occurred yet. Something to keep on radar.
Inflation (if you look in the right places)
