I would still like to short the TEN but...

There is potential for an up move also, therefore
if TYH14 (ZN 04 14) trades above 123 21.5 SELL 1 contract at 123-15 Day Only

if Filled, place a BUY @ 26/32 above the entry STOP GTC

This will let the market confirm the down move before we enter.

Trigger reached but no reverse

Finally reached the trigger and in fact the 10 year closed at the trigger point of 123 -22.
I still like the short side, but this market may go higher. Therefore, I will submit a

SELL @ 123-13 STOP LIMIT 123-11.
if filled, place the protective BUY STOP at entry plus 26/32.

Right Idea...but No fill


Hum....Right idea, but....Price went right through my STOP and even with the LIMIT (-)4 ticks, I did not get filled.
I was trying to protect against a quick spike down and back up and for the first time in long time, used a STOP-LIMIT.

If anyone used these prices (or similar) and either filled or did not, please send me a PM. Just curious.


sell orders fill on the bid

Long 10 yr Short the Bond

I am long ZNH14 and short the ZBH14 from the opening today. I am looking for the trend to change to UP but there should be little correction to get the two prices back in line first. (Very short term plan)

If I am correct, I BuyToClose the Bond and keep the Ten for a few days.

Exited short Bond

At the open I closed out the short bond trade (130-22) so I am now net long the 10 year.
Stop is 123-20

Stay LONG the TEN

The Bond is moving up ahead of the ten year, a bullish sign. I am staying long and will look at the chart in the morning.
