Global Central Banks have so numbed Treasury markets it is as though Bernanke and Yellen gave a massive shot of Lidocaine to financial markets since 2008.


The 10-Y Treasury Note continues to see record net short positions. While the 2-Y Treasury Note net short is close to zero.


10-Y Treasury Note volatility?  Numb.


2-Y Treasury Actives zero coupon vol? Numb.


The Federal Reserve thinks that numb is good.
