And as an aside, on an annualized basis, the three above combined sold far more corporate equities than they bought. So it must have been that good old household sector buying right? Wrong - "households" sold over $200 billion corporate equities annualized in Q3. So there you have it again - everyone was selling, yet equities magically levitated up starting with Bernanke's Woods Hole speech. So aside from the fact that even the government admits there was a global net selling in stocks (just over $20 billion) in Q3, the market somehow levitated to close about 10% higher in Q3.

Yeah 10 year bonds at 3.35% is a total disaster. This "rout" is merely a correction from a ridiculously low level which wasn't sustainable for long.
