What’s Up, What’s Down: Bonds Form a Double Bottom

Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Wednesday’s Price Action


Higher closes yesterday for eurodollars, notes and bonds again but no changes technically. The Eurodollar is still in a support area while the bonds have a double bottom but look lower overall along with the notes. Except for ‘flight to quality’ I can’t see why people would want to be long the financials with interest rates at or near rock bottom and the indices still in up-trends at this time! Continue to look for lower financials overall. I hold technical Sell Signals for the Treasury Notes and Bonds. Please feel free to contact me for details.
