Largest Ever One-Month Rotation into Bonds Signals Pessimism

Another concerning statistic that came to light during the Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Fund Manager Survey was that investors made the largest ever one-month rotation into bonds (BND). As reported by CNBC, the survey said, “Investors are approaching extreme bearishness…This month’s survey [found] the biggest ever one-month rotation into the asset class.” The bond allocations rose 23 percentage points to net 35% underweight, the highest allocation to bonds since the Brexit vote in June 2016. The allocation to bonds also rose amid a drop in inflation expectations.
