The market took a big dive and then recovered with a gain. However, interest on the 10 year bond rose about 30 basis points (.3%). It had been around 1.75 but it went to about 2.0?. It is now 2.13%. Divide the original percentage by the recent rate and that will give you the percentage left of whatever bonds you hold, Trump tried to blame Janet Yellen and CNBC is failing to recognize the fact that the holders of U.S. Debt are dumping it over our stupid ass election choice. Note: The DOW is generally up but the other markets are suffering disproportionately. REASON: Flight to SAFETY. Most Dow stocks are well established companies like GE, Dupont, Walmart, Microsoft etc. Ohe half of my portfolio is in Dow stock of which there are only 30. Things are happening and it aint good.
