Charts added to this post as I complete them. Full post ETA 10:30.
Bonds finally came through with falling away from 165^08 and are now nearing first support at 162^31. Prefer first support fail and test 161^23 but probably smart to manage if short. Expect bulls to try to bounce it up from one of the two supports.
Well, now that bonds moved past the prior high in 2016, what does it mean? It means that the ending diagonal is growing larger and that the move up from the October 2018 low should be comprised of three segments. On the scale of the ending diagonal, spanning ten years, we have yet to see an appropriate sized corrective move for the middle segment of [v], thus must see the current rise as the first segment, (a) of [v].
Bonds have run up to just short of the 2016 but it is holding under it so far. I prefer a lower high to 165^04 but if it pokes to a new high, I will just call this the end of a larger diagonal. Ideally, prices use 162^30 as resistance and fall back to 159^04 or 156^01. Bears need bond prices under 156^01 to take a new high off the table.
