The volatility in the U.S. Treasury markets heated up this week, as new contract highs were notched on Monday, followed by solid losses on Tuesday and Wednesday. However, price action Thursday morning found the bulls making a counter-attack and having success. Price action Thursday morning was scoring a bullish “outside day” up on the daily bar chart for March U.S. Treasury Bond futures–whereby the high was higher and the low was lower than the previous session’s high and low, with higher prices on the day Thursday.

See, too, on the daily bar chart that March T-Bonds remain in a solid uptrend from the double-bottom reversal lows scored in September and October. The bulls still have solid near-term technical momentum on their side, but will need to push and close March futures prices above solid technical resistance at the contract high of 119 14/32 to gain fresh upside technical power to suggest a solid leg up in prices in the near term. Importantly, T-bond market bulls are also enjoying the support of market fundamentals being firmly in their favor. Stay tuned!
