    As per the latest Bank of America Merrill Lynch (or BofAML) Global Fund Manager survey released on May 15, growth expectations have slipped to the lowest level in the last two 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.

    ADP, a human capital management solution provider, releases a monthly report on US non-farm employment.

    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%. This positive surprise may have somewhat cemented the chances for three more rate hikes in 2018, and the Fed has no reason to back off from additional rate hikes this year.

    Why Higher Yields Are Driving the US Dollar Higher

    Over the last one year, the US dollar has struggled against all the major currencies with the US dollar index (UUP) depreciating by 10.6% in 2017 and 2.2% in the first three months of 2018. At the same time, US interest rates (AGG) have been increasing but remained at a lower level to instigate any strong moves in the currency. Why is the US dollar’s rise impacting other currencies?

    How Higher Bond Yields Could Affect Equity Markets

    The US ten-year yield has moved above the 3% rate for the first time in three years amid increased inflation (TIP) expectations and the US Federal Reserve’s resolve to continue with interest rate hikes. In the same period, the S&P 500 (SPY) Index delivered a total return of over 350% in this bull-market cycle, and analysts continue to project expansion in business and thus stock prices. The question on everyone’s mind is whether stocks will continue to be attractive when bond yields are growing.

    Investors are retreating from these bond ETFs as yields rise

    A swift rise in bond yields in 2018 has sent fixed-income investors scrambling, with major categories of bond exchange-traded funds seeing steep outflows, while other groups have found favor. While flows into bond products remain positive overall—extending a decadelong rotation into fixed-income from stocks—investors have retreated from notable categories, a sign they believe yields could continue rising, which would mean further deterioration in the funds, as prices and yields move inversely to each other. Notably, the yield for the U.S. 10-year Treasury note (XTUP:TMUBMUSD10Y=X) topped 3% on Tuesday and neared its highest level since 2011.

    Should We Start Ignoring the Yield Curve Inversion?

    Based on comments from key members of the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) and the mismatch between the economic performance and signals of a flattening yield curve, it’s tempting to stop depending on the slope of the yield curve (BND) (AGG) as a tool to determine recession risk. It’s important to understand that no financial indicator is foolproof, and the same can be said about the flattening yield curve in the current economic climate. As Fed Chair Jerome Powell said, the indicator might not have relevance in a low-inflation (TIP) environment.

    In a presentation given by James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, he said the yield curve could invert by the end of 2018. Although the presentation was four months ago, it still holds true since the yield curve has flattened more than what it was in December 2017. In his presentation, Bullard laid out a few conditions that could lead to the yield curve inversion.

    Why the Markets Are Worried about the Yield Curve

    The spread, or the difference between the yields of the ten-year US Treasury and the two-year US Treasury (BND), has fallen below 50 basis points for the first time since 2007. According to Investopedia, “A yield curve is a line that plots the interest rates, at a set point in time, of bonds having equal credit quality but differing maturity dates.” The most common yield curve traced by the investing and academic communities is the U.S. Treasury (GOVT) curve that plots the yields across various maturities. A normal yield curve is upward sloping, and long-term yields are higher than short-term yields.
