    A coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China that has already killed four people is starting to permeate its way into the capital markets, especially safe haven Treasury bonds as prices rose and yields fell. The benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell four basis points to reach 1.78% while the 30-year yield fell to 2.32%. “The Treasury market benefited overnight from coronavirus concerns as well as Moody’s downgrade of Hong Kong’s long term debt rating,” said Ian Lyngen, BMO’s head of U.S. rates.

    Long-Term Bonds Have Record Year in 2019

    Long-term, short-term, municipal, Treasury, high yield, investment grade—it seemed wherever category of bonds investors allocated their capital, they were winners in the bond market. “This past year was one of the best since the financial crisis for fixed-income returns,” wrote Brian Moriarty in Morningstar. As Moriarty mentioned, the central bank’s interest rate policy saw Treasury yields hit basement-level lows in 2019, which was a boon for bond prices.

    Bloomberg Data Shows Bond ETFs Took In Over $150B in U.S. Last Year

    How popular were bond ETFs in the U.S. during 2019? If $150 billion says much, then very popular indeed—according to data from Bloomberg Intelligence, fixed income ETFs took in the most money in one year since 2014 and reached over $800 billion in total assets. Additionally, the more cost-cautious investor is looking at their relatively low expense ratios as an effective way to get core bond exposure as opposed to purchasing the debt issues themselves.

    Market Strategist: Modest Gains Expected for 2020 Stocks, Bonds

    After 2019’s strong performance for stocks and bonds, expect both assets to put out a showing in 2020 that’s akin to a musical artist’s sophomore slump after a chart-topping debut album. Nuveen’s U.S. equity strategist Bob Doll recently predicted in a MarketWatch report that both stocks and bonds will gain “less than 5% for only the fourth time in 25 years.”

However, if one were to follow the herd, then diving into bonds irrespective of what the Fed does in 2020 is the way to go.

    Investors Need More Education on Using Bonds in Retirement Planning

    Fixed income manager BNY Mellon Investment Management says more must be done by financial advisors to educate clients on the use of fixed income when it comes to planning for retirement. “Investors who work with financial advisors are more likely to believe they have a good grasp of fixed income compared to those without an advisor: 64% who’ve worked with one say they understand fixed income “a lot” or “somewhat” compared to 35% of those without an advisor, according to a report from BNY Mellon Investment Management, which notes that it’s the third-largest fixed income manager by assets,” wrote Alex Padalka in Financial Advisor IQ.

    Stocks Jump on Strong Job Gains, Easing Worries About a Trade-Induced Recession

    While equities reeled early in the week, President Donald Trump declared, “I don’t watch the stock market,” contrary to his many tweets touting records set by the major indexes since he has been in the White House. “Jobs are what I watch,” he added, quite presciently, as it turned out, when the Department of Labor on Friday morning delivered boffo employment numbers for November. The headline unemployment rate ticked down a tenth, to 3.5%, the result of a rather tepid 83,000 increase in the separate survey of households and a smaller, 40,000 rise in the labor force.
