Looking to short bonds via Eurodollars…

The issuse with bonds is I have read somewhere the fed/gov (not federal, nor gov) is buying most of them (70% already?). If so, why would the price EVER go down unless they wanted them too??? I don’t know. But I do know Eurodollars are way more liquid than bonds and the fed/gov might not be able to buy as many. (Eurodollars have over 10 times the open interest, AND 10 times the notional value per contract verses bonds.)

Xiphos_Trading on TLT: Unable to hold its NL breakout. May take another go, may go get sold hard too.

Seems to me price has at least one more rise left in it.
