March Treasury Bonds are down 6/32 this morning at 115:22 as I write. The included chart shows that March T-Bonds are still involved in a fairly steep decline in price ever since the neckline of the double top was broken a week ago in the 117:00 area. That 117:00 area is now resistance on any rallies. Traders should be looking to sell short more March Bonds on rallies back towards the 117:00 area. The directional movement indicators are bearish that the ADX line continues to rise. The measured initial downside target for March Bonds is 111:00 as mentioned in previous letters. On this expected light trading day prior to New Years, I recommend holding our current positions and enjoy the holiday.
