10-year Treasury yields broke through resistance at 2.25%, offering a medium-term target of 2.65%*. Breakout above primary resistance at 3.00% is remote at present, but would signal the end of the secular down-trend (bull market in bonds). It appears that bond investors are reducing their exposure in anticipation of this occurring. Expect retracement to test the new support level at 2.25%; respect would confirm the breakout. Rising 13-week Twiggs Momentum above zero also strengthens the signal.
* Target calculation: 2.25 + ( 2.25 – 1.85 ) = 2.65
The Dollar Index is retreating despite rising bond yields. Declining 13-Week Twiggs Momentum warns of a test of primary support at 93. Breach of medium-term support at 95 would strengthen the signal. Respect is less likely, but would suggest another test of 100.
