Yield for U.S. treasury indicates flight to safety

All three trends for the U.S. 10-Year Treasury indicate a flight to safety as the yield plummets. This does not bode well for the continuation of the near-term uptrend in the S&P 500 Index. And it is definitely a negative indicator for major world indexes.

Flight ot safety continues as indicated by the yield for the 10-Year US Treasury.

West Texas Intermediate long-term chart

It is a good idea to step back and look at a chart for West Texas Intermediate with a wide-angle lens. For 2015 and 2016, the 200-day moving averages defined the major downtrend and resistance on each of the near-term uptrends. The major trend, intermediate trend and near-term trend are all down. WTI will test major support at $35. Like I said before in a previous post, the spigots are wide open. A break below $35 will have a negative effect on world indexes. Banks have exposure to large loans given to the shale plays in the boom years.

West Texas Intermediate will test major support at $35

The spigots are wide open. The major trend is down, the intermediate trend is down and the near-term trend just turned down. WTI will test major support at $35. The near-term downtrend in the U.S. dollar should be a plus for WTI but right now traders are concentrating on supply news out of the Middle East.
