BILL GROSS: June 30, 2011 Will Be Viewed As America's New "D-Day"

In his latest note, Bill Gross wonders who will buy Treasuries when the Fed stops.

We posted his chart here on that.

He ends with a big conclusion:

Investors should view June 30th, 2011 not as political historians view November 11th, 1918 (Armistice Day – a day of reconciliation and healing) but more like June 6th, 1944 (D-Day – a day fraught with hope for victory, but fuelled with immediate uncertainty and fear as to what would happen in the short term). Bond yields and stock prices are resting on an artificial foundation of QE II credit that may or may not lead to a successful private market handoff and stability in currency and financial markets. 15% gratuities may lie ahead, but more than likely there is a negative two-bit or even eight-bit tip lying on the investment table. Like I did 45 years ago, PIMCO’s not sticking around to see the waitress’s reaction.

That’s not subtle. He thinks bonds will tank when QE II runs out, and so he’s running for the hills.
