China: covering shorts on US treasury bonds?

China: Rumors of the Central Bank Chief's Defection | STRATFOR 

I just read this news and is worth to notice that, even if this is not true, it is perfect to explain the last rally in US treasury bonds. Last months we were trying to find something that explains why the yields tanked again. I did not saw panic in the market (only in the fat finger day). In addition, I think this last movement on yields does not looks like a "flight to quality" and the yields were relatively low (compared to other investments) to justify a big buy on them. The last explanation to this big buy is china covering big shorts....I am still in research on this matter.
