Inter-market Technical Analysis using algorithmic pattern detection
THURSDAY DECEMBER 16, 2010 12:10:00 GMT
Yields across the UST spectrum are maintaining their upward momentum and the yield on the 30 year bond closed at 4.6% which has also had the affect of pushing mortgage rates in the US back above 5% which may be just one of the unintended consequences of QE2.
As can be seen on the chart the 4.8% level may act as a target/attractor in the near term.
The Brazilian Bovespa index is sitting rather precariously at a key support level.
The German DAX has been one of the best performing equity indices in Europe and as can be seen on the longer term weekly chart the index has a 78.6% target at 7150. However the ETF which tracks the MSCI Germany Index (see below) does look as though it may be in the early stages of a correction.
Investment grade corporate bonds, as tracked by LQD, have fallen below the 200 day EMA.
