Commodity Chart Of The Day: 30-Year Bonds

by: Matthew Bradbard

As of this post, 30-year bonds are probing the down sloping trend line that has capped rallies since the first week of December. With a settlement above the 9 and 20 day MAs we've seen today, I expect a trade higher. The inverse relationship to equities also would support a move higher. My suggestion is to use the Fibonacci levels as your targets on the way up. As opposed to gaining bullish exposure, I would prefer to be a seller from higher levels.

While this is a chart of 30-year bonds, I am setting clients up to establish bearish positions from higher levels across the curve. That ranges from on the long end with 30-year bonds all the way to the short end with euro-dollars… contact me for specific strategy, risk levels and profit objectives. I am not in the camp that there is a bubble in the debt complex, but it is very possible that the multi-decade bull market has ended. So if not willing to trade futures/options, perhaps lighten up on your bond portfolio, as it could be a storm if and when yields start moving higher. In full disclosure, that may not be for several years, so don't think there will be instant gratification… just my opinion.
