From the desk of Tom Bruni @BruniCharting
In early July we were looking at some divergences that were signaling a potential short-term bottom in US Interest Rates.
That thesis was quickly proven wrong as global yields pulled the US down with them, and last week in our Conference Call we discussed our current outlook for Bonds and their many intermarket relationships.
Earlier this week JC discussed the fact that Bonds are at an interesting level relative to the S&P 500 as well.
Yesterday I discussed some of the pitfalls to avoid when using Bond ETFs as a proxy for the underlying assets.
Needless to say, we’ve been talking a lot about Bonds.
In this post, I’m going to take a simplified look at price action and momentum of the 2, 5, 10, and 30-Year Treasuries to assess the reward/risk and if there’s a short-term trading opportunity at current levels.
