Monitor the resistance level of 1.70% and then 1.80%
Has a negative technical profile as indicated by the major trend which is sideways and intermediate trend which is down.
The yield would have to move above the resistance levels of 1.70% and 1.80% if the near-term rally in U.S. equities is to continue. This represents the movement of capital from the relative safety of the U.S. Treasury to U.S. equities. A sustained advance of the 10-Year yield to the 2.40% level would indicate the upward movement in commodity based indexes like Canada, Australia and Brazil as investors take on more risk.
