Three 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, which has gone from neutral to extreme short. Total capitulation.
2. Stocks vs Bonds futures positioning:
This one shows where 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.
