Small change compared to TLT and ZROZ. I think those two have a clear target to reach, before considering whether they have reached full value
Agreed. As a first safety asset the bonds are soaring, some going into gold. In 2008 the bonds skyrocketed and then went down while gold went up big. So far no reason yet to sell TLT .

Holding above 1500 was a good sign. It needs a breather.
Yes, 250$ gain in less than 3 months, with no serious pull back, very good action.

Question for you, what's your take when the market is plunging, is it best to pull out at for example 20k when I invested 22k and a loss of 2k and then reinvest when you the market rising? Hence you cutting your losses? And I'm talking where you don't assume the market is suddenly going to rise overnight. And why lose further. Now when it falls deeply you can reinvest the 20k vs you leaving it in and it falls to 15k?
   What's the strategy when the market plunges?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If you are in for the long term, by which I mean many years , do not put a lump sum at one time, buy on dips every month, and just stay invested. I myself do not invest for the long term, as I believe in the traders saying-in the long term we are all dead- as I have no patience and no tolerance for losses, so I trade short term , I am not gambling as the methods I use give me an edge, it is all a probability game.

Seriously? Italy 30 year bonds tracking that close to US 30 year bonds (seem to be widening a tad recently, not because of the instability in Italy, but because US yields are starting to track towards where German and other yields are).  ::) While the spread between German and US bonds is so wide (keeping in mind that the only way Germany is keeping itself out of a shrinking population is by importing Muslim refugees by the masses).

I don't think we can see a carbon copy of the Austrian 100yr bond rally, just because the math is different on a 30 year bond, but seems to me like we are in for a rally that won't relent until US yields turn negative (on the 10yr).

Today Gold made new all time highs in Euro, JPY,GBP ,CAD,AUD and probably every other world currency except in USD, which might be coming soon. Today was up $30 in USD. In spite of the nice rally today, I had my first losing trade in months, and it is kind of a dumb move on my part, I was long GLD 142 call options that expire today, I closed the position yesterday with a small loss thinking today is expiration and Gold was not doing much yesterday, was a little down. If I held the position till today, would have made a nice profit, I still am short the SPY,NDX and DJI, and long the GDX options.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Coming soon to a market next door?

I don't see why they shouldn't make a small issuance at each refunding round, keeping it a tight oversubscribed sale each time. As long as the global economy is in the current shape, I think there will be plenty of buyers.
