Being a trader for as long as I have been provides me with a sense of historical significance not possible for newcomers to market speculation. I distinctly remember the high interest rate periods of the 1970s and early 1980s. In fact, I remember the day the top of yields (and bottom of futures) was confirmed by the completion of a large symmetrical triangle (see chart). I remember the day this triangle was completed because I bought the upside breakout in futures. The completion of the H&S bottom on the weekly yield chart now completes the cycle that began in Aug 1982.
A Generational Low?
Two chart observations are worthy of note. First, the advance this past week in yields completed a 4+ year H&S bottom on the weekly chart with targets of 4.37% and 5.03%. Second, the advance this past week also penetrated the upper boundary of a multi-decade channel. It is my belief that an Interest Rate Generational Low has been confirmed in yields.
