Morgan Stanley vs. Goldman Sachs On Treasury Rates

I would always go with Goldman Sachs. Since the sell side analysts and mainstream  media are on the story, probably the majority of a downward move has been done. Bloomberg story: Morgan Stanley Sees 5.5% Note as U.S. Faces Deficits. As I already wrote in Shorting Long Dated Treasuries, I believe this is one of the potentially great trades, but in near term I am with the deflation camp. My view is that combined FED efforts of keeping mortgage rates and weak company pricing power and output gap would keep rates low for some time.
