Over the last few months the 10yr bond market has been developing a long term inverted head and shoulder pattern. This was suggesting a test of the 200dma may be coming up soon and yields would continue to come down. However, today we saw a massive bearish engulfing and a move that almost wiped out last week’s entire move higher. This aggressive move lower in the notes, also dropped back below the inverted head and shoulder pattern neckline after a rejection of the 50% retracement. This false upside breakout could leave bulls holding the bag. The risk (now) is that bonds continue to slide back to the 50dma and yields continue to rally. This could affect the USDJPY as that pair has been very sensitive to the move in 10yr yields.
