Pinnacle Digest writes: The 30 Year Treasury Yield rose 0.45% Tuesday morning on the eve of the Federal Reserve's coming announcement on the US economy. With bond yields once again rising, the long term bond market is telling us Bernanke and the Fed will tighten and could taper its monthly bond buying program. While this goes against what is commonly believed by most investors and analysts it makes Wednesday's announcement all the more interesting.

Gary Tanashian was among the first to write publicly about the un-sustainability of the bubble in credit and its associated dangers, launching http://www.biiwii.com in 2004 and a technical analysis oriented blog (http://www.biiwii.blogspot.com) to amplify the themes of risk management and value investment.
In a feat of historic timing, the commercial newsletter Notes From the Rabbit Hole was launched in September of 2008 immediately prior to a financial meltdown of epic proportions. 'NFTRH' has successfully navigated the financial markets for subscribers with a portfolio gain from baseline (Issue #1) of 111% - and counting - over the two years of its publication. In this strange world (down the rabbit hole), risk management is as important as the willingness to take a contrarian attitude in finding investment and trading opportunities. The analysis in NFTRH is 'top down' from macro perspective to actual investments, with the idea that when we get the macro right, the deployment of capital is the (relatively) easy part.
