10-yr TREASURY – bond yields have had the same call we’ve had for most of 2011; intermediate to long-term US economic growth is structurally impaired (slower) than what garden variety recovery models expect. The 10-yr failed at my intermediate-term TREND level of 2.41% last week and is down 6bps this morn vs Friday.

COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION

COPPER – agrees with the move in China  – Dr Copper down -2.9% this morning after failing at TREND line resistance ($3.91/lb) last week; Oil fails at its long-term TAIL of resistance ($93.86 WTIC) but holds its TREND line of $88.89 support. Plenty of volatility to trade around whatever the US Dollar does.
