    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.

Per a Bloomberg report, the “yield on benchmark 10-year sovereign debt is up 20 basis points since a three-year low on Sept. 6, ranking it among the worst performers in Asia. BNP Paribas Asset Management’s Jean-Charles Sambor is optimistic about yuan-denominated debt and predicts that the 10-year yield will hit 3.1% by year’s end.

    Market Expert: Keep Bond Durations “Short or Very Medium Short”

    While it’s still necessary to get core bond exposure if an investor’s portfolio is heavily tilted towards equities, it’s also important to keep duration in mind, especially if the investor’s primary goal is income generation. In times like now where yields are low, income can be hard to come by, but rather than looking for debt issues with the highest yield at the expense of longer duration, market experts are warning investors to keep their duration exposure short. “If you’re going to buy bonds and you need income, I would keep your duration, [your] maturities, short or very medium short,” said Todd Morgan, chairman and CEO of Bel Air Investment Advisors.
