A useless gesture, no matter what technical data they've obtained!

In my last 10-year trading post, I wrote that while momentum was negative for Treasury prices, we were sitting on a key support level, leaving the direction highly uncertain.

On Monday, 10's pushed through support at 3.48%, offering an entry for a short. I made a small short at 3.50% using TBT ($47.24). I was at 1/3 size. I figured I'd pile on if the 2-year auction stunk. I looked like a genius for about 4 hours. Then on Tuesday we rallied away most of my gain and the strong 2-year auction pushed the 10-year back through the 3.48% level. I sold TBT within seconds of the auction at $47.21.

Now we're extending the rally with 10s at 3.41%. If I were forced to pick a direction I'd guess we keep rallying into the low 3.30's, but of course the 5 and 7-year auctions could go poorly and completely upset that. My plan is currently to let it keep rallying and then re-set a short, most likely in front of the 3-10-30 auction cycle next week. I might fool around with trading right around the auctions today as well, but those will be very small sizes if I do it at all.

IF you know bonds so well why are you trading TBT versus the futures?

Cheesy SW reworked quote:
"Don't be too proud of this technological terror (i.e. the Fed) you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet's currency is insignificant next to the power of the Deflationary Force(s)."

I had some ZN futures this week and sold the bastards for an insignificant profit...right before it blasted off. Damn you Bernanke!

You may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
