The 10 Year Bond Yield fell to new lows for 2014 today and made 6 month lows. This has been building for a while. There is one layer of horizontal support left for yields at 2.47% which is marked by the red line.
Usually when the yield curve starts dropping, this is not as positive for stocks. The yields fall as investors bid up the price of bonds.
While the long bond has been rolling for a while, getting multiple breaks of support on different durations of notes/bonds would suggest investors are looking for the safety of bonds across the yield curve.
This would bring into question the ability of the Nasdaq to keep rallying off last weeks lows. The early March 2014 high on the ten year note at 28.21 also marked the high on the Nasdaq market within a day. From March 6th on this chart, the bonds have made lower highs and lower lows which coincides with the trend in the Nasdaq.
