Chinese bonds – Just wondering what the trade war means for Chinese bonds as the 10-yr government bonds yield declined to 3.40% from 3.90% this year alone, while the 10-yr China Development Bank bonds yield slid to 3.80% from 4.80% since January.

…in relation to our view based on the weekly chart published a week ago (below article): A breakdown through an “ideal” double bottom formation and scenario 2 might be in play. The long weekend in US (market is open but lower liquidity expected) can present itself as a perfect envirnoment for a quick manipulation. Do you agree with us? Intraday

A lesson from corporate bond space while 30-year US Trys rate is hitting the 4-year high

Mr Hawk/ November 2, 2018/ Story Of The Week, Weekly Notes Posts/ 0 comments

The US 30-year Trys rate touching 3.41% means printing a 4-yr high or a new high for the cycle.

But we still miss a significant move in bond markets despite recent correction in stocks or risk-on

Mr Hawk/ October 29, 2018/ Weekly Notes, Weekly Notes Posts/ 0 comments

But there is something behind the scenes and it is called the uncertainty that Trump has brought with him. The tensions between US and China are real and markets has started
