What Is The Bond Market Saying About Itself?
With all the media press and hype, you would think bond yields have just spiked above 15%.
We have to remind ourselves that everything, that is, every move, every press release, every interview, is controlled.
Controlled for the purpose of “deception” as Livermore put it during an interview with Wyckoff in 1921.
With that in mind, who stands to benefit from the sharp move lower in bonds?
Seems like the obvious answer is, the short-term shorts and the longer-term bulls; especially if the hapless ‘hedge funds’ have jumped on the band wagon to short the market.
Bond (TLT) Analysis:
What Is The Market Saying About Itself?
The sharp move lower over the past four trading sessions, has likely cleared out the weak hands and emboldened the shorts to short some more.
The problem is (for the bears), we’re at a 50% retrace of the March 18th low. In addition, price action has just penetrated well known support.
That puts the bond market (TLT) in spring position.
We can see from today’s open, TLT is gap-higher and now, just below the support level.
We’re at the danger point, where the risk of going long is least (not advice, not a recommendation).
Because the four-day down-draft was so swift, don’t expect TLT to launch into an instant and sustained rally.
There may be quite a bit of testing (if and) before this market heads higher.
