The Situation

The Canadian Long Term Bond Index ETF - XLB 
​(iShares Core Canadian Long Term Bond Index ETF) was trading within a
​downward channel pattern that started back since February 2015.
​ ​​(See First Chart Below- Thick Grey and Red Trendlines).

But since November 9 2015, we keep making higher highs and higher
​lows, ​anyway a very good technical sign indeed​ as
shown by ​the ​​first ​​chart ​below.

But the most interesting factor is that ​we broke the Major Resistance Trendline from that downward channel pattern that started back on February 2 2105 and so critical for Bulls to protect from now on. ​​(See chart below - Red Trend Line - Ellipse)  All that within a rising trading volume. ​(See chart below - Bottom Blue Area Chart - Ellipse)

Interesting to observe that we are already above the 20, 50 and 200 DMAs (Day Moving Averages) on that Canadian Bond ETF. (See chart below - 20 DMA Yellow Line, 50 DMA Red Line and 200 DMA Green Line)
