FEWEST NEW VIRUS DEATHS SINCE MARCH" and "TRUMP SIGNS $484 BILLION CORONAVIRUS
PACKAGE INTO LAW".
- NY Fed lowers daily avg Tsy sec buys to $10B from $15B

TECHNICALS:
US 10YR FUTURE TECHS: (M0) Focus Still On 140-00  
*RES 4: 141-26   0.764 projection of Feb 2 - Mar 9 rally from Mar 19 low 
*RES 3: 140-24   High Mar 9 and key contract high
*RES 2: 140-00   Round number resistance
*RES 1: 139-22   High Apr 22
*PRICE: 139-02+ @ 16:15 BST, Apr 24
*SUP 1: 138-17   Low Apr 17
*SUP 2: 137-16   Low Apr 7 and key near-term support 
*SUP 3: 136-29+ Low Mar 24
*SUP 4: 136-16+  50-day EMA
10yr futures maintain a consolidative short-term tone. The outlook though
remains bullish. On Apr 7, prices found support at 137-16. This was also the
area where the 20-day EMA intersected on Apr 7 and the subsequent recovery is a
bullish development. Key short-term support is 137-16, Apr 7 low. While it
holds, the focus is on 140-00 and the contract high of 140-24 from Mar 9.
Initial support lies at 138-17, Apr 17 low. The bull trigger is 139-22.
AUSSIE 3-YR TECHS: (M0) New Normal
*RES 3: 100.000 - Handle Psychological Resistance
*RES 3: 99.951 - 123.6% Fib Projection
*RES 1: 99.780 - High Apr 01
*PRICE: 99.735 @ 16:16 BST Apr 24
*SUP 1: 99.440 - Low Mar 16
*SUP 2: 99.300 - Recent low (cont)
*SUP 3: 99.225 - Low Feb 6 and 13 (cont)
Aussie bond markets hold close to alltime highs following the RBA's venture into
bond markets which is clearly still propping up prices. The chart has now begun
to look overbought and a period of consolidation is now the most likely outcome.
A break of the Mar 16 low would trigger deeper short-term losses and open the
99.300 level, a recent low of the continuation chart.
AUSSIE 10-YR TECHS: (M0) Needs to Find Firmer Footing
*RES 3: 99.5598 - 1.236 projection of the Jan 2 -Feb 4 rally from Feb 13 low 
*RES 2: 99.4850 - High Mar 10 and bull trigger 
*RES 1: 99.3600 - High Apr 01
*PRICE: 99.1250 @ 16:17 BST, Apr 24
*SUP 1: 98.6300 - Low Mar 18
*SUP 2: 98.5700 - Low Jan 2
*SUP 3: 98.1828 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope
Having flatlined for the past week or so, Aussie 10yr futures picked up slightly
across the past two sessions to inch back toward the April highs of 99.36. This
retains the broadly neutral outlook after recent acute intraday volatility and
negates the pre-existing downtrend and any further recovery eyes initially a
break of resistance at 99.3600, Mar 12 high. A break above here opens the
99.4850 bull trigger, Mar 10 high.
JGB TECHS: (M0): Firm to Firmer
*RES 3: 156.02 - High Mar 10 and key resistance 
*RES 2: 154.56 - High Mar 13
*RES 1: 153.50 - High Mar 16
*PRICE: 152.73 @ 16:17 BST, Apr 24
*SUP 1: 150.70 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope
*SUP 2: 150.61 - Low Mar 19
*SUP 3: 150.00 - Psychological round number 
JGBs traded well for a second session Friday, narrowing the gap with the first
upside target at 153.50. Further reports that the BoJ could consider unlimited
bond buying continue to support, making a further upside break a stronger
prospect. Targets remain at 153.50 initially ahead of 154.56. To the downside,
targets sit at the 151.52 low, which opens 150.61 next as well as the
psychological 150.00 handle further out.
