The technicals of the 30-year Treasury bond future remain all bearish (lower prices, higher yields). A broader view appears to be that QE2, allegedly designed to keep interest rates low, actually drove interest rates up and also drove up equities and inspired a measure of consumer and investor confidence. Not exactly textbook as to what monetary policy should be about.
