The abject failure of yesterday?s seven year Treasury bond auction and the crash that ensued has enabled the year-to-date return for my Macro Millionaire trade mentoring program to soar to a new all-time high of 43%. The 30 year bond plunged a staggering six points from the previous day?s high. Yields on ten year government paper have ratcheted up 50 basis points in just a few weeks, from 1.80% to 2.38%.
It?s a good thing that my only position going into the collapse was a major holding in the (TBT), an ETF that profits most from exactly this type of scenario, which rocketed some 10% today. Using the leverage embedded in this popular ETF, some 40% of our capital is devoted to short Treasury bond positions. This move comes on the heels of my October 8 call to cover all shorts in ?RISK ON? assets, including stocks, commodities, oil, and foreign currencies, with a major fall rallies imminent.
