    We look for higher bond prices by the end of October, once the Treasury financing is out of the way. Pension fund lock-up buyers remain a strong positive factor. But what is really needed is some post-election indication of political fiscal responsibility.

    In some ways, the bond market is more impressive than the stock market. We continue to think it may be a brand-new ball game for a while with a growing number of new players. Throw out your old rule books? Our pre-election expectation for T-Bonds is 11%-12%.

    T-Bonds broke the August 1983 lows, but municipals and corporates still seem to be holding. Pessimism is rampant. Investors should consider buying T-bonds now. The biggest risk may now be not owning bonds. I expect a good rally momentarily.
