- The past week has shown a fairly consistent pattern that shorts have been set
on the German contracts but for non-German contracts the picture is a uniform
reduction of existing longs. Although not shown, this also extends into the US
contracts with a particularly large OI decline for the 5Y note ahead of the FOMC
decision tomorrow. On a longer term perspective, we note that the Bobl is where
recent entrants over the past 6 weeks have placed the most shorts.
