Bond ETFs Look Attractive? Really?

Based on the probability models I have developed, several bond ETFs have shown numbers that indicate a robust positive move may be coming. So presently, I am tracking $UBT (ProShares Ultra 20+ Year Treasury) and $LQD (iShares Investment Grade Corporate Bond) because they have the strongest numbers.

These models have a scope of six to seven trading days. Therefore I assume that the move, while positive, will be very short.

We’ll see.

Bonds Have The Worst Outlook

I think the news from FedEx on Friday morning is a significant indicator of the market’s future. One of the greatest Stock Market prognosticators of all time, Charles Dow, used the Transportation index as his leading indicator for the overall market. FedEx is one of the top components of the Transportation index.
