‘June T-Bonds (ZBM2) settled at 137*09 up *15 ticks.Total estimated volume has been 370.106 and open interest down to 573.323.

Wednesday’s trading saw US Treasuries were in demand following equity sell off and US Dollar strength against major currencies.We’re seeing ‘Risk Off’ trade going on in all markets.Under normal circumstances this is bullish for bonds.But we have been in a FED supported ‘unreal’ trade zone and this is about to come to an end.I think any bonds rally is a big short opportunity for long term investors.ZBM2 trading at 138*11 up 1*02 as of 06:32 while Risk on assets under pressure.
