As stocks continue to chug along and interest rates have lifted off from their recent lows and could climb higher still, now is a good time to revisit bonds' role in a diversified portfolio.

    Should You Be Worried about the Possible Yield Curve Inversion?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different times. When the yield curve (BND) inverts, it means that the yields of shorter-duration securities become larger than those of longer-term securities. The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of upcoming recessions in the past.

    What Does the Flattening of the Yield Curve Mean for Gold?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different time periods. The narrowing of the difference between these yields is usually referred to as the “flattening of the yield curve.” The more concerning thing is when the yield curve (BND) inverts, which means that the yields on shorter duration securities increase those on the longer-term securities. The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of an upcoming recession in the past.

Rising interest rates increase the cost of owning a home for prospective buyers, but the impact hasn’t yet been felt by the housing (XHB) markets, as the recent economic data continues to paint a rosy picture for the housing sector.
