Risk aversion dominated the US session overnight and carried forward in Asian session. DOW closed down -1.48%. S&P 500 dropped -1.22%. NASDAQ lost -1.20%. Technically, all three indices were rejected by 55 day EMAs, suggesting more near term downside pressure.
More importantly, treasury yields dived again on massive safe haven flows. 30-year yield took a big plunge by -0.118 to close at 2.130. TYX is now just inch above historical low of 2.102 made back in 2016. A break there is inevitable.
10-year yield also dropped -0.095 to 1.639. TNX is now below 78.6% retracement of 1.336 to 3.248 at 1.745. We’d still pay attention to bottoming above 1.336. But a firm break of 2.102 in TYX could likely drag TNX through this 1.336 low at least.
