10-Year Note Futures
The 10-year note futures in the March contract settled last Friday in Chicago at 129/12 while currently trading at 129/03, experiencing a wild trading week with large price swings daily. In Wednesday's trade, prices traded as high as 130/06 before selling off rather dramatically as tensions with the country of Iran simmered down.
However, I will be recommending a bullish position if prices close above 129 /14 while then placing the stop loss at 127 / 29 as the risk is around $1,500 per contract plus slippage and commission. In my opinion, I do not think the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates in 2020. That is a fundamental bullish factor towards higher prices ahead, coupled with the fact that the risk/reward is in your favor as volatility certainly has come to life. I don't think the problem with Iran is over with yet as there will be more skirmishes down the road.
If you take a look at the daily chart, the 10-year note has bounced off the 128/00 level on a half a dozen occasions as the yield is 1.82%. I think we can head back down to around the 1.50% level as you have to remember many countries around the world still have negative interest rates, so look to be a buyer.
TREND: MIXED - HIGHER
CHART STRUCTURE: EXCELLENT
Silver futures in the March contract settled last Friday in New York at 18.15 an ounce while currently trading at 18.15 unchanged for the trading week, however, that doesn't tell you the whole story as in Wednesdays trade prices went as high as 18.89 before selling off on tensions with the country of Iran which have seemed to settle down.
I have been recommending a bullish position from around the 17.45 level and if you took that trade continue to place the stop loss under the 10-day low with now stands at 17.81 as an exit strategy as the chart structure is outstanding. Currently, I also have a bullish platinum recommendation as I took profits on the gold trade last Sunday. Still, I do believe the entire precious metal sector is headed higher as the tensions with Iran could resurface in a New York minute as that would send prices even higher, so stay long as the risk/reward remains in your favor.
