A massive short squeeze in equities sucked the bid away from Treasuries. With little fresh fundamental news to work with, this was the primary driving force behind the day’s trade.
If it weren’t for the volatility, these markets would be snoozers. There is little news and light volume…and this makes our job tough. Accordingly, we’ll keep today’s newsletter light and unfortunately repetitive. We were sticking with yesterday’s comments:
We favor a sell into rallies strategy for now, but this does not mean that you should be chasing the market lower. If you want to be a bear, make sure you enter at “good” prices. We see resistance just over 129 and then again near 130 (trend line which we prefer not to see). In the meantime, our first downside objective will be just over 125. If you are trading the note, look for resistance near 123’20, and then again just over 124’00 (which we aren’t counting on). The first downside target in the note will be just over 121.
Our clients were advised to close their short August Bond 131 call position near 10 or 11 (most fills were reported at 11). This locks in a profit of $234 per contract.
