TLT Breaking Out of Range? Real Money Pro($)

iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) seems to be breaking outside of its recent range (to the upside) -- and the 10-year U.S. note yield might be soon moving toward my summer target of 2.00%.
Allow the current shorts to be squeezed a bit.
Such a break would signal an all-clear for more aggressive trading.
10-year Treasury yields have reversed higher by 8 basis points from the morning's lows. The U.S. dollar is getting stronger (111.14 against the euro). Crude is lower. Equities are overbought. Good news (housing) may be bad news. Everyone's favorite, Apple (AAPL), is faced with the reality of Apple TV (see Piper Jaffray's research). While I continue to prefer being reactive (over-anticipatory), I did short (small) the SPY ($213.72) and QQQ ($110.38) in the premarket trading ramp.
The euro is down dramatically, by 1.13 (now at 1.187 to the U.S. dollar). Sentiment in Germany fell spectacularly, to 41.9 in May (49 was expected) from to 53.3 in April. European indices are soaring, with the exchanges in Germany and France each up 1.8% recently (in other words, "bad news is (still) good news"). US S&P 500 futures are up by 6 handles. Bond markets are higher (and yields lower) around the world: German 10-year Bund yields are down by more than 8 basis points (to 0.56%) and U.S. yields by 3 basis points (to 2.195%).
The yield on the 10-year U.S. note has risen by eight basis points (to 2.23%) and the yield on the 30-year U.S. bond has climbed by 9 basis points (to 3.01%) today. 
The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF chart reveals a sharp downtrend.
The bulls will be back in position.
Just another buying opportunity.

Finger on the Trigger Real Money Pro($)

It has been a remarkable comeback for the bond market today. After a nine-basis-point rise in yield to 2.35% in premarket, the 10-year U.S. note yields 2.23% now (at the day's lows). Closed-end municipal bond funds are generally reversing the weakness in the early going this morning.
