Week ended 1st July, 2011 – Treasuries & Bonds this week .

After 11 weeks, 2 & 5- year Treasury Yields gave positive weekly closings. Treasuries are indicating sign of pullback when FED is stepping away from the market. Treasury Yields were mostly positive this week. Now what can be the cause of these declined, what I think that the improved news from Greece about the avoidance of defaults and end of QE-2 in US are the main causes of it. As many investors unload these safe assets. But it is good news for Europe about Greece austerity measures in spite of protests and there are some news that many banks from countries other than Greece are working on rollover of Greek debt.

Coming week

0.46 is crucial level for 2-Year Treasury Yields. On the upside unless it breaks 0.55 it is hard for it to rise more from here. In the downside 0.42 and then 0.39 is crucial level.

For 5-Year Treasury Yields, last day I was talking about resistance at 1.70, it even broke that and may be testing levels at 1.90. In the downside 1.60 is next support level but better one is at 1.50 level.
There were some expectation about rise in Treasury value but this week it’s movements were quick. 10-Year Treasury Yield broke crucial resistance level at 3.10 but it is getting some resistance at 3.20 and better resistance is at 3.30. In the downside it’s immediate support is at 3.10.
30-Year Treasury Yield broke good resistance at 4.35 and as I said in last week that unless it breaks 4.50, I don’t expect any big rise from it. In the downside 4.25 is good support for it.

Some are suspecting that Euro-zone debt problems are far from being solved. So if it is true then for them these declined in secured assets are better buying opportunities. There were some talking that Fed will continue to buy Treasuries from the proceeds of maturing debt which it currently owns. That sounds roughly $300 billion debt purchase without adding money into the financial system. So Fed is indicating some hope as they are getting more time for some constructive remedy.

Sorry for brief market reviews this week.

DAX forecast for coming week ended 15th March, 2013.

This week was very good for Dax, though it is getting resistance at 8100 range. Now it has a chance to test downside again. I think even if Dax tests lower levels, it has more chance to bounce back from around 7800 range and therefore it will again test upside.

On the other hand if it shows flat movements around 8000 range in initial days of the coming week then there is a chance that it may take a decisive call in later days. Considering the recent trends it has the chance to test higher levels may be around 8200 but that will be a very aggressive call after taking in to account the movement from last December. I will worry about the downside when Dax will be testing levels below 7600 ranges.

Fed’s rate hike Vs Sovereign rating up gradation

Financial market is very much worried about the rate hike in US, probably this is going to come in coming December. But I think that is not going to change much of the things. Even Fed hikes rate in December it will be not so much, because we are forgetting one thing that interest rate in US is around zero so even they hike rate by 0.25-50% basis points (at most) in this year that will not be enough cause for Dollars to change their locations around the world especially markets have already discounted this coming rate hike in US.

A new disaster is coming in EU banking sector, whom to blame, big Audit firms!

First I was thinking what should be the title of this posting? Will it be good if I write that big audit firms set the time for EU bank collapse! If someone is thinking that financial crisis is over then think twice because the coming EU banking crisis is no way less than 2008 financial crisis. The time bomb will explode at some point of time in future, the time has not yet set for it. In that tsunami, forget about the smaller if any major banks collapse then I will not be surprise.
