Out Of Stocks And Into Bonds

Most markets were down today such as foreign currencies, stocks, crude oil etc. but one investment vehicle continues to rally and that is the bond market. You'll notice in the above chart of TLT that we are starting to see heavier volume come in on the up days.

Two weeks ago I posted about how the relationship of bonds vs stocks has changed in favor of  bonds. You can read that post by clicking here.

Interesting how TLT keeps going up today (5/19/10) while UUP went down and FXE went up. Strange, one would think that UUP is the the risk aversion trade.
Something is out of whack. Perhaps a bottom? I covered my few shorts and started positions in energy and oil services. OIH looked oversold this noon.

Bonds.. but what bonds ? PIMCO's Total Return seems to be leaving Europe for the safety of US bonds.
If I were a bond man, me thinks I'd be purchasing Canadian.
