Bond Market Glory Days Are Over

Peter Schiff : I think the glory days are over for the Bond market... maybe they are not over today... I have been saying this for a while just like I was warning earlier about the housing bubble. I think more investors who have sought out bonds as an alternative to weak performance in stocks, I think that's where the next catastrophe is going to be as far as catastrophic losses. And not just in treasuries as I think any long term debt instrument denominated in dollars is going to go down but particularly sovereign credit. People perceive it as being safe. The way I look at it there is only two alternatives for bond holders, either they lose due to default or they lose due to inflation. - in Fox Business News
