Bonds! Get your bonds!
Goldman Sachs: "We believe that a security whose appreciation is primarily dependent on whether someone else is willing to pay a higher price for it is not a suitable investment for our clients.”
Fed: "We'll pay a higher price for bonds"
GS: "Bonds for sale, get your bonds!" https://t.co/LPUQIsvyRX
