US TSY SUMMARY: Early Risk-On Tone Loses Momentum

Mkts kicked off new wk w/ concerted risk-on tone, Tsys broadly weaker w/ equities climbing early overnight and holding gains into midmorning. Risk appetite supported by hopes of bipartisan breakthrough on relief stimulus.

  • * Grudging reversal started around midmorning. While a "48 hour" deadline for stim-deal given to WH by House Sp Pelosi over weekend, Sen maj/ldr McConnell's insistence on targeted relief soured hopes (w/"PPP loans, creates liability protection, more unemployment benefits, forgiveness of postal service loan, education assistance")
  • * Tsys pared losses but remained weaker in second half even as equities continued to extend lows, likely reacting to Bbg headline: "DEMOCRATS SAY DISAGREEMENT ON STIMULUS LANGUAGE REMAINS".
  • * Markets showed little react to multiple Fed speakers (Fed chair Powell discussed digital currencies; Bostic, Clarida, Kashkari, Harker all hummed party line), while thorny BREXIT negotiations continued. No noticeable market react, but underscores second half risk-off theme: "US IMPOSES SANCTIONS ON CHINESE FOR TIES TO IRAN," Bbg
  • * The 2-Yr yield is up 0.2bps at 0.1451%, 5-Yr is up 0.8bps at 0.3297%, 10-Yr is up 1.3bps at 0.759%, and 30-Yr is up 1.6bps at 1.5442%.

TECHNICALS, US 10YR FUTURE TECHS:

Selling Pressure Dominates

  • RES 4: 139-25 High Oct 2
  • RES 3: 139-17 76.4% retracement of the Sep 29 - Oct 7 sell-off
  • RES 2: 139-14 High Oct 15
  • RES 1: 139-01+ Intraday high
  • PRICE: 138-28 @16:42 BST Oct 19
  • SUP 1: 138-20+ Low Oct 7 and the bull trigger
  • SUP 2: 138-18+ Low Aug 28 and bear trigger
  • SUP 3: 138-16+ Low Jun 23 (cont)
  • SUP 4: 138-12 61.8% retracement of the Jun - Aug rally (cont)
Treasuries have reversed last week's positive tone. Monday's sell-off marks an extension of the pullback from the recent high of 139-14 on Oct 15. The move through support at 138-28+, Oct 13 low exposes 138-20+, Oct 7 low and 138-18+, Aug 28 low. The latter is the bear trigger where a break would signal a resumption of the reversal that occurred on Aug 4. This would open 138-04+, a Fibonacci projection. Firm resistance is at 139-14.

AUSSIE 3-YR TECHS

Looking To Clear Resistance

  • RES 3: 100.00 - Psychological round number
  • RES 2: 99.886 - 3.0% Upper Bollinger Band
  • RES 1: 99.840 - All time High Oct 6, 15 and the bull trigger
  • PRICE: 99.835 @ 16:53 BST Oct 19
  • SUP 1: 99.760 - Low Oct 1 and 2
  • SUP 2: 99.705 - Low Sep 18, 21 and 22
  • SUP 3: 99.675 - Low Sep 7 and key support
Aussie 3yr futures are largely unchanged and remain bullish. The price surge at the tail-end of September and early October confirmed bullish trend conditions. Recent activity is viewed as a pause in the uptrend and in pattern terms has taken on the appearance of a bull flag. This is a continuation pattern and reinforces current trend conditions. A break of 99.840, Oct 7 high and last week's high would open 99.889. Support is at 99.760.

AUSSIE 10-YR TECHS

Uptrend Remains Intact

  • RES 3: 99.480 - High Mar 10 and the all-time high
  • RES 2: 99.360 - High Apr 2 (cont)
  • RES 1: 99.290 - High Oct 16
  • PRICE: 99.250 @ 17:01 BST Oct 19
  • SUP 1: 99.075 - Low Oct and the key support
  • SUP 2: 99.055 - Low Sep 18 and 21
  • SUP 3: 98.970 - Low Sep 8
Aussie 10y futures remain bullish following last week's strong impulsive rally. The break above 99.180, an area of congestion reflecting highs in Sep and early October confirmed a resumption of the uptrend that started on Aug 28. Attention turns to 99.300 and 99.360. The latter is the Apr 2 high (cont). The near-term bull trigger is 99.290, Oct 16 high. On the downside, firm trend support is at 99.075, Oct 5 low.

JGB TECHS

Bullish Focus

  • RES 3: 152.55 - High Aug 5 (cont)
  • RES 2: 152.36- 3.0% Upper Bollinger Band
  • RES 1: 152.29 - High Sep 24 and the bull trigger
  • PRICE: 152.10 @ 17:02 BST Oct 19
  • SUP 1: 151.75 - Low Oct 08 and trend support
  • SUP 2: 151.54 - Low Sep 7
  • SUP 3: 151.43 - Low Sep 1
JGBs remain firmer following the recent recovery that has resulted in a move above 152.00. Attention turns to 152.29, Sep 4 high, a key resistance and the bull trigger. A break of this level would confirm a resumption of the uptrend and open 152.36, a Bollinger band objective and 152.55, Aug 5 high (cont). On the downside, key trend support has been defined at 151.75, Oct 8 low.
