Efforts by the Treasury to sell bonds due in more than 30 years would face obstacles as the Federal Reserve begins raising interest rates from a record low, according to dealers that underwrite U.S. debt sales.
The Treasury Department asked the Fed’s 22 primary dealers today to comment on demand for such securities. The question came amid a bond rally this year that surprised traders who began 2014 forecasting higher yields as the economy improved.
“They really have to think about what the demand is going to be like for it in the future,” said Thomas Simons, a government-debt economist in New York at the primary dealer Jefferies LLC. “That’s anybody’s guess.”
“It doesn’t sound like there would be tremendously aggressive demand” for 50-year securities in a period where yields are rising, Simons said.
I'm wondering why the demand for it is split by is going to be like.
Would it be possible to use when in place of where there?
Are these just stylistic choices?
