With institutional investors increasingly using fixed income exchange traded funds and doing so for a variety of reasons, ordinary investors can learn some important bond ETF lessons from the pros. Elevated equity market volatility in October highlighted professional-level use of fixed income ETFs, including the iShares Core US Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG), among others. “Record trading volumes during October’s bout of market volatility shows how fixed income investors are increasingly utilizing bond ETFs to manage risk.
JEFF REEVES'S STRENGTH IN NUMBERS Over the last few years, diversification has become a dirty word on Wall Street. Amid consistent outperformance for large-cap tech stocks and a steady grind higher for “risk-on” equities in general, many investors have been conditioned to rely on a select group stocks and ignore the rest.
John Lynch, chief investment strategist at LPL Research, says the autumn correction in the S&P 500 proves Treasurys can still protect investors’ portfolios from stock market declines
U.S. government debt prices ticked higher Friday morning amid political turmoil over Brexit and uncertainty surrounding the outcome of U.S.-China trade talks.
Amid fears of rising Treasury yields, some investors pulled money from fixed income funds for the week ended Nov. 1, but some exchange traded funds focusing on bonds managed to see healthy inflows. “Investors ...
The US jobs report for October was released on November 2. The strong job additions came after lackluster September additions of 134,000, which were further revised downward to 118,000 in October. The unemployment rate remained steady at 3.7% in October.
During a volatile October month, traders headed for the entrance to bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) just as often as they headed for the exits. In particular, trader volume soared the most in the iShares Core US Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG), which saw $2.6 billion in withdrawals or 5% assets under management. Next, the iBoxx $ Invmt Grade Corp Bd ETF (LQD) experienced an outflux of 6% of its assets under management.
Investors can breathe a sigh of relief now that October is coming to a close--a forgettable one for U.S. equities. Needless to say, October hasn’t been kind to U.S. stocks as the technology sector, in particular, has been getting trounced with the Nasdaq Composite falling by 9.2% in October, making it its second largest decline since it fell 10.8% back in November 2008. With sectors like technology getting roiled by October's downpour of volatility, tech-centric ETFs like the Vanguard Information Technology ETF (VGT) and Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLK) were obviously hit hard. "The surprising thing is some of the unloved ETFs actually did really well," said Lydon.
Municipal bonds and related exchange traded funds may not be the most exciting asset category, but they have been holding up relatively well in the fixed-income space. “Muni performance has been nothing ...
Yesterday, the Federal Reserve released the minutes from its September 25–26 meeting. Read When Will Fed Tightening Start to Hurt the US Economy? for a summary of the Fed’s actions at the meeting and the market’s reaction to them. The meeting minutes were slightly more hawkish than expected, and they signaled that most Fed officials believe that interest rates must continue to rise.
U.S. government debt yields rose across the board Monday, rekindling fears higher borrowing costs would slow the economy. The uptick in Treasury yields Monday came nearly a week after the rate on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note topped its highest level since 2011 above 3.26 percent. Rates retreated later last week as investors sought the relative safety of the government debt market, bidding up bond prices and sending yields lower from their highs.
The biggest bond-related ETF experienced a record one-day withdrawal after the global fixed-income market witnessed a swift plunge in response to the Treasury bond retreat. The iShares Core US Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG), which tracks the investment results found in the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index, recorded a record daily outflow of almost $2 billion on Tuesday, its largest one-day redemption since the ETF began trading in 2003, the Financial Times reports. The bond market has been on the retreat ever since Treasuries sold off on expectations o further rate hikes as strong economic data supported a tighter Federal Reserve monetary outlook.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DIA) tumbled more than 800 points yesterday as Treasury yields (TLT) (AGG) continued their upward march. Rising bond yields and signs of firming inflation have spooked investors. Investors worry that because the era of near-zero rates has ended, companies’ margins might get squeezed.
Jeffrey Gundlach, CEO of DoubleLine Capital, said yesterday that US Treasury yields (TLT) are likely to rise further. During an interview with CNN, he said, “The US 10-Year yield could climb to 3.5% and the 30-Year rate could hit 4%.”
The bond index anchoring trillions of dollars in fixed-income markets is on track to log its second-worst showing over the history of the benchmark’s existence.
