  • Bill Gross Backtracks on Treasurys     Tuesday, 30 Aug 2011 | 7:00 PM ET

    Betting against US debt was a mistake, says Bill Gross, PIMCO founder & co-CIO. David Goldman, former BofA fixed income research head, and Scott Nations, NationsShares, weigh in.

  • "Obviously in hindsight it¿s a bit of a mistake. Treasuries makes up roughly a quarter of the US bond market so saying we¿re going to completely abandon them in a fund as large as the one Bill Gross runs is a huge bet and it¿s a huge bullish bet on the credit markets, it¿s a huge bearish bet on government bonds. Now clearly that hasn¿t come true but economic conditions have deteriorated far quicker than either we or Pimco could have anticipated. And the Federal Reserve has made this additional commitment in the last couple of weeks. It has really supported the government bond market and that¿s to detriment of many other asset classes in the fixed income universe"¿ Guy Lebas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott
