The Day Ahead: PM Edition 2019-08-22

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.

Bonds for the most part traded in the range from yesterday. 165^08 held as resist today and likely will tomorrow as well, up until the 14:00 FOMC minutes anyway. At that point, they either decide to press over and try for a modest new high, not crazy about this option but possible, or reject 165^08 and drop to test 162^31 or 161^23 and the daily moving averages.
