Treasury Bonds Still Tracking Opposite To Stocks

    Treasury bonds were down last year as stocks rallied. They then rallied when stocks stumbled in the fall, but stumbled again from October to Dec. 31, as stock rallied to new highs.

    They then rallied in January as stocks sold off, but have been back down in February as stocks have rallied.


    Bonds will rally further only if the stock market rolls back over into a correction. They do seem to be finding support at their 30-day m.a., which may be saying they expect the stock market to rollover again. But we shall see.

    Stocks have reversed the history of January and February.

    So far this year the stock market has reversed the roles of January and February, January usually one of the most positive months of the year, February most often a negative month.



    What will that mean, if anything, for March, usually a positive month. Will the historical pattern return, or will the reversal of roles continue? Stay tuned!
