Personally I hold both long term long positions and occasionally short term short position, for disclosure purpose.**
Easy for them to say. Theirs are all plainly in the negatives, lol.
As the article notes, the US bond market is the main trouble spot, and it'll be interesting to see what the FED says today and tomorrow. Because there's no way they're letting the 10y yield touch 2% this year. They have another 10 year auction next week to keep an eye on. If bonds continue at this rate they'll almost certainly institute yield curve control and expand their buying program.
Not good to see US bonds react so vigorously to news from the EU banks.
