Wikipedia:A bond vigilante is a bond market investor who protests monetary or fiscal policies they consider inflationary by selling bonds, thus increasing yields.

In the bond market, prices move inversely to yields. When investors perceive that inflation risk is rising they demand higher yields to compensate for the added risk. As a result, bond prices fall and yields rise, which increases the net cost of borrowing. The term references the ability of the bond market to serve as a restraint on the government's ability to over-spend and over-borrow.

Προτείνω τον όρο του τίτλου, αν και δεν τον βρήκα να κυκλοφορεί.
Στους δύο που βρήκα να κυκλοφορούν, ο ένας μεταφράζει τον vigilante λες και είναι ο Τσαρλς Μπρόνσον («τιμωροί») και ο άλλος είναι «άγρυπνοι των ομολόγων», που είναι σαχλό.
