10 Year Treasury Approaches Upper End Of 30 Year Channel

We are approaching a monumental moment when the bursting of the U.S. treasury bond market bubble will have finally arrived. The implications for this could fill tomes on a bookshelf, and I spent the entire 2013 Outlook and 2013 Second Half Outlook discussing some of the fall out that will occur when this bubble deflates. The 10 year treasury, the fulcrum that all rates are based on around the world, has been in a steady declining channel for over thirty years (secular bull market). Should this channel be broken, it will mark a monumental technical change in the charts that will symbolize the beginning of a new era. I will obviously continue to watch and update the following chart on a regular basis as we move forward.
