December 30 Year T Bond Chart

December 30-Year T-bonds have been extremely oversold for days. Wait for opportunities using the numbers (below). This market has been rotating up and down in hyper drive but breaking to the downside recently.

Deflation and weak economic conditions support to no avail. Credit conditions remain tight due to European banks and wide credit spreads. Today’s numbers should be friendly, looking for CPI and housing numbers to fall short of expectations. As like most markets now, volatility is at a record breaking high and the daily trading ranges are huge. Pick your spots and play with a known risk.
