Position Trading The Bund

I have been Trend Trading the Bund and OAT (French gov bond) for years now.
But I am waiting and watching to short it.
On the way up its been a trend following trade.
But I am considering a position trade on the way back down.
The difference being in getting in before the trend takes hold. This is out of character for me.
Maybe a little foot in the door (with a sensible stop of course) before the real drop possibly next year.

Here is a couple of links if anyone is interested. The first is a video of Gross's public take on it.

And the second link is the interpretation.

Very interesting. Food for thought.
Interested to hear your views.

I reckon you are right there, tar.
if so I'll probably be long again before being short again.
