COT: Funds sold bonds and stocks ahead of FOMC — #SaxoStrats

Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
By Ole Hansen

Leveraged funds were continued sellers of bonds ahead of last week's Federal Open Market Committee meeting. This came as the market prepared for a potential hawkish hike. 

The value of the net-short across the four index futures doubled with selling seen in all but the Dow Jones.

Buying at the front of the yield curve was more than offset by the selling of ultra long 10-year and 30-year bonds.

Hello Ole. Positioning of Managed Money (even for agricultures+metals... ) is really interesting in conjunction with reality. I mean dovish FED+Hike last week. In my personal view: clear sign that even Funds with big boys might be wrong. Or do You (+ TF community) have different opinion? Next week I expect significant reversal in positions.

Actually, I don’t know much about making investments but I consider making my first investment. I would like to talk with someone who understands the world of investing and can recommend where to invest. I’m a bit tired from living through so I want to save some amount of money and invest it. I know that some people make good money on investments. I like that it’s a passive income so you don’t need to do anything! Just invest your funds and wait for the revenue.
