Could be an interesting week for bonds coming up

  1. The set up could be for a bit of a sell off.

    If Europe moves to the back burner, folks might not be as inclined to hide out in the "safety" of Treasuries

    Whole bunch of supply coming on: 3's, 10's and 30's

    Got the Fed meeting on Tuesday (prob. a yawner, but never know)

    PPI and CPI at the end of the week (prob. tame, but again ... never know)

    And some data has been getting better lately, admittedly not great, but better.

    Bunch of data this week too (Watch the Philly Fed on Thurs.)

    And if there's any type of "Asset Allocation" (read: out of Treasuries and into "risk assets") be some fuel for the fire.

    But it is end of year and there's some nice gains in Bonds, so might have to wait 'till the New Year.

    Anyway - Long the TBT (interest rates going up) might be something to keep an eye on.

    And or short the TLT.
