|Looking at a weekly chart of the 20-year Treasury Bond Fund exchange traded fund (ETF), there are a number of indications that point to a potential short- to intermediate-term bottom (Figure 1).|

|The first of these indications is the convergence of two Fibonacci levels. As shown in orange, 127.7% of the move between the June 2007 low and August 2008 top yields a projection of a $105.94. Similarly, Fibonacci support levels drawn between the June 2008 lows and December 2008 top yield a price target of $105.87 at the 50% retracement level. The difference between those support levels is mere pennies.|
|The second indicator is the weekly stochastics, which are deeply oversold. Finally, TLT has now closed a gap formed in November 2008, when prices moved strongly higher above the 127.7% Fibonacci level previously cited.|
|While there are indications that TLT may be searching for a bottom near the $106 level, this is by no means a certainty. Should TLT break below $106, it would quite possibly have much farther to fall. |
