We have gotten to the point where the roll issue is not a monthly concern, but is becoming a weekly funding threat, and even daily. Of course, as we speculated in December, what better way to raise demand for Treasuries than to stage an equity selloff.
Already, we are seeing that CDS traders are massively betting on a collapse of the UK as the next bastion of sovereign spending lunacy. And when the UK goes, Germany is next, shortly to be followed by Japan and the US. At that point the only buyer of US debt will be the US itself. Which will lead to the final outcome of massive consumer deflation as economic collapse finally strikes home, coupled with asset price hyperinflation, as a gallon of oil hits $10 (and helping the Dow hit 36,000).
