Gross is right to dump T-bonds… From the end of WW2 to the present day the U.S. Treasury was the safest security possible. In my mind that era ended with QE. Treasuries will remain the worlds most liquid asset but will not provide the safety of a globally diversified portfolio of equities and corporate bonds which provide income streams in several different currencies.

Good luck staying ahead of the curve!

He stated that much of the cash was in fixed income futures. When PIMCO decreased its holdings recently was it the actual fixed income or did they just not roll over the future contracts?

Curious. Anyone know?
