Extremes in Bond Market Sentiment

October 8, 2018

3 Quickfire charts on US bond market sentiment... some of these sentiment charts are clearly at an extreme - and that's usually when you go looking for contrarian signals.  But then I look at a lot of charts on the bond market and it's quite easy to make a case for a major trend change.


1. Speculative futures positioning:  The standout here is speculative futures positioning in the 30 year... gone from around neutral to extreme short.  Total capitulation. 



2. Stocks vs Bonds futures positioning:  This one shows were equity vs bond market futures positioning lies right now - notice how the gap is at a record high.  Traders are doubling down on growth/inflation here.



3. Bond mutual fund flows:  Last one shows a massive lurch in bond fund flows, with net-outflows the most extreme since the taper tantrum.
