Treasuries have continued to sell off as the Treasury market reprices both interest rate and inflation expectations. Recently, the yield curve has begun to steepen further, and the 2s – 10s inversion has gradually decreased. The longer end of the Treasury market has experienced a significant increase in supply due to Congress’s spending increases and liquidation by foreign debt holders. So the question arises: Is this the bottom in for shorter-duration Treasuries, like two year notes?
The two-year Treasury note exhibits interesting technical features. Currently, major trendline resistance and the 50-day EMA have converged at the 101’15 level, serving as a significant resistance point for the two-year note. To gain more upside conviction, we would need to witness a break and close above this level. A move higher is likely to coincide with softer economic data and inflation returning to the Fed’s 2% target. Conversely, if we continue to observe economic strength and persistent inflation, major support will remain at the 101’03’5 level. A break and close below this level is likely to trigger additional liquidation.
While the market is currently undergoing a substantial repricing of longer-duration Treasuries, the two-year note (shorter duration) price change will be less susceptible to interest rate fluctuations.
