Both Jim Rogers and Marc Faber to Short Long-Term Treasuries

Marc Faber says that investors should short long-term U.S. treasury bonds at the appropriate moment:

I think the big trade in 2009 will be to go short Treasurys massively -- I really mean massively -- because we may not have inflation for one, two, three years . . . .

Jim Rogers is saying the same thing. Rogers agrees that long-term treasuries are the last bubble, and is going to short them at the appropriate time.

  1. the right time... Which is when exactly?

    A) 3 days
    B) 3 months
    C) 3 years
    D) maybe a little of all the above

    It's easy to make predictions and give date ranges.

  2. The right time is now. Below is an excerpt from my recent post called "Economic Detox" at
    "The dollar as well as other closely related paper currencies will be much less valuable on an international trading level as an over supply of dollars flood the market to create the perfect inflationary storm. China, Russia, and the Middle East among other large holders of U.S. currency reserves will soon be forced to spend their large dollar savings to defend their own buckling economies at the same time that the U.S. is seeking to borrow trillions of dollars of new money to fund our ever growing socialistic activities. In other words, as supply of dollars will be increasing, demand for dollars will be decreasing. The net result is that interest rates will soar to 20%+ as the useless paper currencies will be worth less and less in relation to economic essentials such as food and electricity."
