Technical Analysis

Yields closed moderately higher today, moving up to a new short-term high above the congestion zone in the 2.30% area. Technical indicators are neutral to slightly bullish overall, suggesting that direction is in question with a slight upward bias.

Cycle Analysis

We are 12 sessions into the rally phase of the cycle following the short-term cycle high (STCH) on September 18. The magnitude and duration of the last decline phase signals the likely transition to a bearish translation and favors additional short-term weakness. The window during which the next STCH is likely to occur is now through November 3.

  • Last STCH: September 18, 2014
  • Cycle Duration: 30 sessions
  • Cycle Translation: Bearish
  • Next STCH Window: Now through November 3.
  • Setup Status: No active setups.
  • Trigger Status: No pending triggers.
  • Signal Status: No active signals.
  • Stop Level: None active.

Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A close above current levels would reconfirm the uptrend from mid-October and predict a move up to congestion resistance at the 2.45% level.
  • Bearish Scenario: A reversal and close below the recent low near 2.06% would reconfirm the downtrend from April and forecast additional losses.

The bullish scenario is slightly more likely (~60% probable).
