    Jeffrey Gundlach: Fed Should Watch Its Words Carefully

    Since the Fed might increase short-term rates by another 25 basis points at the December meeting, the yield curve (BND) could invert. The Fed has maintained that its future decisions will depend on market data (SPY) (IVV).

    Bond King Jeffrey Gundlach: ‘Economy Is Poised to Weaken’

    During an interview with Reuters, DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach said that the current inversion of the yield curve (TLT) could signal that the US “economy is poised to weaken.” He added that the inversion at the short-end of the Treasury yield curve implies that the bond market doesn’t think the Fed plans to raise interest rates through 2019. As we discussed in Yield Curve Inverts for the First Time since 2007: What to Know, the spread between five and three-year Treasury yields narrowed to -0.01 percentage points on December 5.

    Could the Yield Curve’s Inversion Mean a Recession?

    The yield curve mainly reflects bond market investors’ expectations of the Fed’s actions and future economic conditions. As the Fed may hike up short-term rates by another 25 basis points at the December meeting, the yield curve could invert. The Fed has maintained that its future decisions will depend on market data.

    Yield Curve Inverts for the First Time since 2007

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different times. The narrowing of the difference between these yields is sometimes referred to as the “flattening of the yield curve.” In contrast, shorter-term security yields becoming larger than longer-term security yields is referred to as “yield curve inversion” (BND). Yield curve inversion is a cause for concern for some bond traders and investors, as it has been an indicator of upcoming recessions.

    Treasury yields are increasing again, reigniting concerns about higher rates in financial markets

    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.

    Why Gold’s Upside Potential Outweighs Downside Risks

    As we discussed previously in this series, the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~9.0% year-to-date and ~12.0% from its April peak. While gold prices have generally disappointed in 2018, there are many reasons to believe that this could be about to change and gold might be in the process of bottoming out. As we have discussed previously in the series, this buying is expected to continue going forward and with greater vigor, which should support gold prices.

    Could a Fed Policy Mistake Be a Much-Awaited Catalyst for Gold?

    On one hand, the growth is expected to slow down, but the Fed doesn’t seem to be in any mood to slow down. The concern is also that due to the lag between policy change and its visible impact on the economy (SPY) (DIA), the Fed might keep tightening the rates. Investors are concerned that the Fed isn’t clear on the neutral policy rate. In Why a Fed Policy Mistake Is Worrying Markets, we highlighted why investors are worried that the Fed could keep hiking rates until something actually breaks in the economy.

    As we’ve learned, stocks saw a sell-off in February after stronger-than-expected wage growth data. If today’s wage growth comes in on the upside, the markets could again go into panic mode. In a tweet, Bill Gross, the “bond king” and manager of Janus Henderson Global Unconstrained Bond Fund, mentioned the pricing out of European and Japanese buyers of Treasuries (BND) as the main reason for the bond sell-off.

    Some Bonds Are Better Diversifiers Than Others

    In the context of portfolio construction, the best thing about bonds is that they are not stocks. All these attributes lend themselves to bonds being less than perfectly correlated with stocks, making them good diversifiers of equity risk. 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.
