Speculators are increasinng Treasury short positions while speculators are favoring long positions in gold futures.
Speculators increased net short positioning throughout the Treasury futures curve in the week ended April 9. The bulk of the moves came from adding short positions in 10-year (TY) Treasury futures contracts. They increased their short position in TY contracts by $56,982. And they added some short risk to their two-year (TU) futures positions, after nearly cutting that position in half the previous week.

Speculators also increased their short positions in five-year (FV), ultralong (WN) and classic 30-year (US). Speculators still remain short every Treasury futures contract.

How about gold? The net futures have actually increased since December.
