Short 10yr treasuries on collapse through support

US rates didn't budge following the Fed's "surprise" balance sheet discussion. Instead, 10yr treasuries got monkey-hammed on Friday - entirely shrugging off Syrian escalation fears, closing on the lows and and decidedly breaching month-long trendline support. Look for a bounce at 124'08 and a re-test at 123'28, which corresponds to the first breach of 10yr yield ...

This was a no-brainer. Kicking myself for not finishing the analysis until last night. Will see how the 10cent news plays out. Still bullish. Maybe 300 need to re-evaluate.

Oil keeps looking bullish, begging for a breakout > 55

Breakouts in oil have been very rare over the past year. To that end, I scaled back my bullishness (delta) going into Thursday's NYMEX open by rolling up to 57 calls. Since then, we've seen momentum consolidate, RSI oversold get worked off, and major support levels hold. Boy, does that daily chart look bullish! https://www.tradingview.com/x/qz2JXaHI/ At the ...

$ES_F still running with the bulls...2375

I saw my favorite scare mongering headline on Friday: "Institutions and HF are using the rally to sell to retail investors..." Has anyone looked at HF performance over any timeframe, since 2009? Enough said. I'm happy to keep buying SPX futures and options from them! Moving on... Friday's 3:30 ramp (3:27, to be exact) saw a new all-time closing high for the ...

Still targeting new $ZN lows

Bonds need to catch down to real rates as inflation ought to continue to build. The irrational move higher off of the hotter than expected CPI release has run its course and should swiftly move back < 124'17 (pre-hawkish Yellen surprise) and 124'06 (hot CPI). I'm staying short through new lows and watching for a new high in yields TNX > 2.55%.

Oil risks balanced, waiting for directionality at 53.50ish

For 2017, oil has traded in a very defined $2 range b/w 52 and 54. At the moment, risks are pretty balanced, with a slight short-term downside bias. To that end, I'm long a few 56 APR calls. I'm waiting for directionality @ 53.50ish on a test of wedge resistance. I suspect this directionality will ultimately be a false signal and I plan to trade it accordingly, ...

Euro weakness to continue

Since Tuesday's US inflation report induced dollar reversal, the Euro has defied interest rate differentials and traded in lock-step with traditional risk assets. After running into ichimoku resistance, momentum stalled, failing to break out higher, and Euro closed the week < 1.062 @ 50% retracement. Price action had moved very very far from monthly VWAP. This has ...

ES still clinging to positive momentum, watch 2350

Watch 2350 as an arbiter of further momo strength following Friday's 3:30 ramp'd close above 2346. Prior rebounds off of intraday pullbacks point to 2360, while fib extensions add another 2pts, targeting 2362. On the daily view, ES looks toppy and another test of 2338 looks warranted. I'm long Wed 2350 calls. I'll close these on a weak move to/above 2350. ...

10yr overnight rebound failed

European traders have been dumping bonds all morning, putting an end to yesterday's late day ZN1! bid-fest. The 24m chart has a beautiful short set-up on a beach below rising support at 123'275, which corresponds nicely with a round 2.50% yield. This is a short-term short in a larger bear trend. In the immediate term, I'm targeting 123'140 - 123'090. With ...

More complete analysis forthcoming re: Draghi... In short, the "sell the inauguration" trade looks long in the tooth with selling poised to return to treasuries aided by a dovish surprise from Draghi this morning. Front month treasury futures look to have made a head fake breakout on Tuesday AM and have since collapsed through support at 124'070 with a failed ...

Dovish Draghi Doubles Down - Is policy divergence finally here?

http://www.basementmacro.com/uncategorized/dovish-draghi-do…nce-finally-here/ Draghi doubled down dovishly last week. Key quotes among his presser included: (1) Draghi: "To show that the ECB is going to stay in the markets, to show that it will continue to exert pressure on market prices, though we don't want to distort them, of course." Well, pretty sure ...

Shorting oil to 42

Bullish bets haven't abated over the last two weeks, despite a 6% decline in the front month contract and a new YTD low in oil volatility. Looking to collect some vol carry and continued downside price drift via Sept puts 45 puts. I see room for a decline down to the 76.4 fib retracement at 41.49. Will look to roll down the 45s to 42s - slightly outside the ...

Crude continues to lack support through $39

With no real support until the 50% fib retracement at 38.76 and consolidation zone support at 37.55, crude looks destined to continue lower. Options markets are pricing August expiry at 36.69 on the downside and crude volatility is breaking out of a quarterly downtrend. Watch price action around psychological support at 40.00 for guidance. I opened AUG 38 PUTS ...

Unusual for new $GC_F LODs to form post Euro Close

Fed Funds futures are predicting a 22.5% probability of a June rate hike. That's 4 points higher than pre ISM data. Dollar continues to strengthen. Unusual for Gold to set new LODs after European close. Speaks to degree and breadth of selling. Futures are beginning for a re-test of 1200.
