Bond Breakdown

There are two things I’d like you to check out:

  1. The video tutorials page. It’s super-gorgeous now, and the videos are new. I am very proud of it, and I am positive you will learn a lot about SlopeCharts. For those not using my chart platform for some reason, I encourage you to give it a try.

As for the markets, there obviously isn’t a heck of a lot to say on a holiday, but there was some GLOBEX trading to watch. I am fixated on bonds, as is always the case, and there’s an important prospective breakdown looming at the red line shown below.
