My Market Blueprint Real Money Pro($)

I am growing more comfortable that the path to lower stock and bond prices is coming into focus.
What's behind my bearishness on Treasuries?

Market Musings Real Money Pro($)

My takeaways and random observations about today:
Dip buyers remain in place. Volume continues to be lackluster and market participation modest. (I am fearful of how dull the market will be this summer). Bond prices don't appear to "want to rally" (and drop in yields) even in the face of disappointing domestic data, consistent with my view that the 10-year U.S. note yield is discounting only about +1.25% real GDP. Equity-market participants remain indifferent to exogenous events, like the decaying Greek economic outlook.  I see no reason to alter the "short the rips, buy the dips" strategy as a framework for trading opportunistically over the near term. I see no reason to adjust my (non-self-confident) view that at current levels the market risk doesn't support the reward. I see no reason why anyone should project a self-confident view given the market without memory from day to day. There remains too little "I don't know." Accordingly, it seems essential to size positions (smaller than usual) properly. With today's incremental shorts, I plan to end the day in a modest net short position. 

Bond Buy Paying Off Real Money Pro($)

Bond prices are gaining momentum to the downside this afternoon (and yields to the upside, now at 1.90%) after Friday's sharp price rise and rapid yield drop.

Action in 10-Year Note Real Money Pro($)

Interesting action in the 10-year U.S. note today.

Adding to Bond Short Real Money Pro($)

The 10-year U.S. Treasury note yield is plummeting this morning on the weak retail sales data, down by more than 7 basis points and yielding 1.8655%. I am adding to my short and thinking of doubling if yields stay down this morning.

My Morning Musings Real Money Pro($)

A feature of this morning's markets is the continued rise in domestic bond yields. Last week saw some successful tests of yields, as bonds briefly rose in price and declined in yield. This morning, the U.S. 10-year note is approaching a 1.98% yield, a gain of another 3 basis points. At 2.62%, the 30-year bond is up a similar amount in yield. Here is my case for why the 30-year bond market bull will end this year. I remain long that thesis and short bonds. This morning, Jana Partners targeted Qualcomm (QCOM). Shares are ripping in the premarket. Recommended Reading: Read this, study this.
