US Treasuries – ZN, ZT – Commitment of Traders

Charts re-designed to show price, COT positioning, volume and open interest. (as a result of putting 2 charts together the volume and open interest does not line up exactly when I change the selections)

But that narrative seems to be weakening due to world events:
