Is Ben Bernanke the Only Debt Buyer?

Renown commodities trader Mark Fisher on Tuesday called Treasurys the "ultimate bubble."

Is he right?

That may sound like an extreme viewpoint, but "Fast Money" trader Joe Terranova thinks the potential is there. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has basically said the Fed is going to buy as many Treasurys as possible, Terranova explained. People won't necessarily short the Treasury, so when all the supply comes into the marketplace, there's no buyers on the other side.

If the Fed is trying to make a bubble, they won't be successful because the US is not as bad as the rest of the world economically speaking, said Veracruz founder Steve Cortes. Where is global capital going to put its money, Cortes asked. There are not going to put money in Japanese bonds or the euro instead of US Treasurys, he argued. Tim Seymour, founder of EmergingMoney.com, agreed.

To further the debate, Richard Volpe of RBS Global Baking spoke with the "Fast Money" desk. Watch the videoto see the full conversation with Volpe.
