    Looks like it is inflation for now..

    Inflation rises 7% over the past year to the highest level since 1982

    A key reason for the selling, a jump in government bond yields, reflecting expectations that the Federal Reserve will soon start to raise interest rates, . . .

    The current dump is on speculation of a rate increase in Jan?

    0.5% at one go would be jarring.

    just show how much the world is relying on this zero cost drugs..
    i recalled in 2002~3.. after greenspan held interest rate at 1% after the nasdaq bubble.. everyone is talking about 1% being ridiculously low rates. now we are saying a double hike of 0.5%, which is half of what used to be the greenspan zero rate level, is now devastating.. 8-)

    I think about my parents' double-digit mortgage interest rate in the late 1970's and shake my head in amazement at the rates today.
