See figure 1 a weekly price chart. The 40 week moving average (i.e, red line) is
heading higher, and prices are trading above key pivot points, which are areas of
support (buying) and resistance (selling). In essence, this is a “beautiful” chart with
lots of momentum (i.e., note the breakout gaps). If this were a stock, the analysts
and pundits would be all over the “breakout” —blah, blah, blah.
Figure 1. Price Chart/ weekly
But figure 1 isn’t a stock, it is the yield on the 30 year Treasury, and the chart has
been turned upside down. What I hear and read is this move in Treasury bonds isn’t
sustainable. A sub 3% yield isn’t possible, but isn’t that what “they” said about a sub 4%
yield? Which happens to be in the rear view mirror.
People still don’t believe, and they are not interpreting the significance of the price
action correctly. Maybe if this were a stock people would be wowed by the price
action. But they aren’t. For the record, figure 2 is a weekly chart of the yield on the
30 year Treasury bond (symbol: $TYX.X). Are the low yields of late 2008 the next
stop?
