Major resistance for the 10-year note is 2.40%
U.S. Treasury 10-year note has been trading in an intermediate lateral band of 1.80% to 2.10% for the past six months. The reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis and the old resistance level of 2.1% is now the new support level. Can the index breakout above 2.4% which is a major resistance level that was tested last October? Or will the TNX ease into another lateral trading band with 2.10% as the new support level?
Reference the last chart analysis for the 10-year treasury based on the weekly chart when it was unable to break the resistance level of 2.40% last October.
