Treasury Tuesdays

Click for a large image

The treasury market has three big problems: a rallying stock market, massive supply and an increased risk appetite. All of these are adding to the downward pressure on the Treasury market.

Prices are currently in a downward sloping channel with a decreasing RSI and MACD. Also note the very bearish orientation of the EMAs -- the shorter EMAs are below the longer EMAs and all the EMAs are moving lower.

Also note the riskier parts of the bond market are rising.

The investment grade bond market is rallying, as is

The junk bond market

Given the supply coming onto the market, I would not expect a rally in the Treasury market.
