Dear Traders,

Like us on FaceBook!
My colleague, John Thorpe, just shared a good post discussing interest rates futures, how it affects your mortgage and more. You can read the full post here.
Reading the post reminded me how much I personally like both the 30 yr bonds and 10 yr bonds for shorter term and medium term trading.
If you are a day-trader, read below and start following the bonds or 10 years and let us know if we can assist you in any way!
The ZB or the 30 year offers a different type of personality than the mini SP and other indices. It is more sensitive to certain economic reports and trades differently than other markets, just a total different personality.
The tick size on the ZB is 1/32 or $31.50 per one point/ tick.
I included some contract specs on the T Bonds futures below as well as an intra-day chart for your review.
The 10 yr notes or the ZN are very similar to the 30 yr except it does trade in half points, so minimum fluctuation is $15.625 and the 10 years will have smaller moves than the 30 yr although 99% in the same direction ( opens the door for spread trading on a daytrading basis).

30 yr Treasury Bond Futures Specs
Hours: 05:00 PM previous day to 4:00 PM Central Time
Margins: $2530 initial, $2300 Maint. ( as of the date of this newsletter)
Point Value: full point = $1000 ( Example: 144.16 to 145.16 ). Min fluctuation is 0.01 = $31.25 ( Example: 144.16-144.17) Settlement: Physical Delivery
Months: Quarterly (March,June,Sep,Dec)
Weekly Options:YES
Some of the basic fundamentals to keep in mind when you are considering trading the U.S. 30yr Treasury Bonds for this matter:
1. Interest Rates.
2. FOMC Rate decisions and Language
3. Focus in macroeconomics
4. Bond Prices have an inverse relationship to Interest rates
5. Correlation to US Dollar prices
6. Inflationary prospects
7. Geopolitical Stability
8. U.S. Fiscal and Monetary Stability
