    What This Week's Fed Move Means For Your Bonds

    For several years, the Fed had been raising rates at a relatively slow and cautious pace, in response to seeing the economy expanding at a "moderate pace." Importantly, this week that language changed to "sustained expansion." Central bankers are not likely to make drastic changes in their language, but the view is changing from cautious optimism, to recognizing that the U.S. appears to be seeing a more vigorous period of expansion. This implies the Fed is fairly committed to their current direction. With their interest rate announcement, Fed decision makers also indicate where they expect to see rates in the coming years.

    Why Bond Yields Rose on Tuesday

    The April retail sales report was released on May 15, and the surprise reaction to this report was an increase in bond (BND) yields across the board. There are numerous ways to explain the spike in yields, and the retail (XRT) sales data only acted as a catalyst to the Treasury (GOVT) sell-off, which began a few hours before the retail sales data was released. With the US economy showing signs of continued improvements and other developed economies slowing down, chances are that the US could lead the tightening cycle, which could have led to an increase in bond yields on Tuesday.

    Why 1Q18 Real GDP Estimate Raises Chance of 4th Rate Hike

    The Bureau of Economic Analysis (or BEA) released its first estimate for 1Q18 real GDP on Friday. This reading was above the consensus estimate for a growth rate of 2% but below the 4Q17 real GDP growth rate of 2.9%.
