Appetites for risk are extremely low, making a case for a market pull-back, Dan Nathan of RiskReversal.com said Tuesday.
Calling 1,600 in the S&P 500 "an inflection point," Nathan said that investors who are holding stocks at the moment should be "prepared for a 3 to 5 percent move to the downside" in the next week.
Stocks finished sharply lower for a second session, with the major averages hitting one-month lows.
"It's one of the canaries in the coalmine, I guess," he said.
The yield on the one-month T-bill traded as high as 0.322 percent, levels not seen since the fourth quarter of 2008, before settling at 0.273 percent, according to data from Thomson Reuters. The yield stood at 0.083 at the start of the month.
Brian Kelly of Brian Kelly Capital said that he had sold short.

"I am still short those and will remain so, I think, until about 1,620," he said. "That's what I'm targeting."
Kelly noted that 1-month T-bills were yielding 35 basis points, about the same as a 2-year yield.
"What the market's saying is in the short-term, the bond market is afraid they're not going to get paid their money in November," he said.

StockMonster's Guy Adami said that technical indicators were suggesting a new key level to test 1,620 to the downside, adding that "1,670 now becomes resistance."
On the upside, he added, once the Washington impasse was resolved, the S&P could rally 20 to 25 points, depending on where it was when the hurdle was cleared.
