"NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Treasury prices advanced on Monday, pushing 10-year yields to the lowest since March 2009, after reports on manufacturing in the New York region, U.S. home-builder confidence and Japan's growth fueled worries over the global economy and had investors buying assets perceived as safer."

Many economists view the 10 year not as a gauge for our future economy. Investors are apparently moving to The 10 year note for a safe place to put there funds in the event of another market down turn. If investors see are economy slowing they move to the 10 year if not they stay in stocks.
The 10 year note 2.58% at 2:35 pm eastern time.

Forget "since March 2009"...
Dailymarkets from Dec 1, 2008:

The graphic below captures the full 46 year history of the yield on the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note. While difficult to discern from the graph, this is the first week the yield on that bond has ever closed below 3.0%

It's safe to say that 10yr note lows have been the lowest in history since Obama was elected.
Ironically, or maybe not, it was highest under Reagan.

The 10 year notes yield is now down to 2.42 and the 30 year is down to 3.46. It would appear we have some storm clouds forming on the horizon as people are looking hard for safe places to put there money.
Yesterday housing data was bad with a 24% drop in home sales from last month (this has been a steady decline of four or five months now). And this morning the durable goods data was worse than predicted.
Looks like there may be something to the Hindenburg omen. We shall see.

just read this from yesterdays index of articles:

The 10-year note is now trading just above 2.5%.
That yield is near its all time record low,
nearly 5 percentage points below its 40-year average,
and 13 percentage points below its record high of September 1981.

so, the national debt isn't growing from the interest the Treasury pays out
Thje Treas. is instead confiscating money/wealth from the timid souls who elect the
'less-than-inflation' return on 2-5-7-10 year Treasuries instead of
dividend paying equities( or preferred stocks )

its all about risk in the near-term
& deflation in the mid-term
& a short burst of hyperinflation down the road.

Yes agreed,
But it all sound so strangely familiar........ Oh yah now I remember, it was Germany back in the 1930’s and we all know how well that turned out.
