Horrible Data and Technical Support May Trigger Rally

Bonds and notes spent the day paring early morning losses. The Federal Reserve issued $22 billion in 7-year notes for the first time since 1993 and found a decent amount of demand for the security. Additional price support was found as rumors that Chinese officials seemed to imply that buying fixed income assets would still be a large part of their operations despite their shrinking budget.
Perhaps now that the record $94 billion weekly supply issuance has been accounted for, Treasuries will find reason to make their way modestly higher.


Despite the fact that bonds traded underwater throughout the entire session, there were some glimmers of hope for the bulls. The day’s economic data, although expected, was grim at best. Durable goods dropped 5.2% and the initial jobless claims jumped to an astronomical 667,000. Adding pressure, new home sales were reported to be a 309,000, well below expectations for 324,000.
Seasonal tendencies for the Treasury market suggest that would could see near term strength. Additionally, major technical support levels held in Thursday’s session and Friday’s are known for seeing counter-trend trade. Accordingly, we are leaning higher going into tomorrow. Our clients were recommended to buy Five-year note futures near 117’10 and are looking for about 118’06 but will be willing to take an early profit if the opportunity presents itself.
We pointed out that buying would probably come in near 125’06 in the 30-year bond, and that proved to be relatively accurate. From here, we see the potential for the market to rally to 127’10 and possibly even 129’20. The 10-year note could see 121’20 in the coming days.
