Looking at the US yields, the 10 near yield is now up 5.3 basis points at 1.534%. That is at the high for the day and well above the 1.472% low for the day. The five year yield continues to move closer to the 1.0% level. It currently trades at 0.9861%.
Looking at the hourly chart above, the price moved above its 100 hour moving average at 111.33 and the swing highs from Friday and yesterday's trading around the 111.30 level. That break led to increased buying momentum. The high price has reached 111.557 so far.
The next target comes in at swing highs from September 28 and September 29 along with the swing low from September 30. Those levels come between 111.63 and 111.703.
