Is The 10 Year Treasury Yield Set To Go Higher?

After bottoming on January 30th, the 10 Year Treasury Yield (TNX) rallied sharply along side equities for much of February before pausing into March. That rally was set up by an RSI divergence and an undercut of the lows. The recent pause following the rally has taken the shape of a classic consolidation “handle”.  But with the February NFP Jobs Report coming on Friday, that could be too “easy”.

So how should we attack the chart as traders? From a technical vantage point, the 10 year treasury yield definitely looks like it wants to go higher. But how that happens isn’t always clean and neat… and sometimes it doesn’t happen at all. IF the 10 Year treasury yield is going to go higher, it will need to take out 2.15 (21.50) – call that the trigger. That level represents the February 17th’s high as well as the January 2/5 gap lower at the beginning of the year (which was recently filled). Either way, it’s resistance. And if/when yields drive through that level, they could make a measured move targeting as high as 2.43 (24.30).
