The capital markets are hanging on to any sliver of positive news whether it's progress regarding a U.S.-China trade deal or more dovishness from the Federal Reserve next week, which could trigger a shift back to risk-on where high-yield fixed income can be a more attractive option than leveraged loan options that feature a floating rate component. "So leveraged loans are performing worse than high yield," said Peter Tchir, a contributor at Forbes. As Tchir notes, the Federal Reserve has been increasing its dovish tones as of late even if the general consensus is that a rate hike in December will most certainly occur as the CME Group’s FedWatch Tool, an algorithm that calculates the probability of a rate hike in a given month, is now showing an 80.1% chance the Fed will institute a fourth rate hike to end 2018.

The 2018 Midterm Election provided the necessary rally for U.S. equities after washing investors through October's volatility machine, but this continues to persist in the capital markets as the Dow Jones Industrial Average began Monday with a 600-point loss as it struggles to recover on Tuesday--a sign that investors should give bonds a closer look--fixed-income exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in particular. The sell-offs in October was partly to blame as a confluence of these factors could signal that the environment for fixed-income investors will only get more complex. Maybe, but maybe it isn't so wise for investors to dismiss bonds outright," wrote Goldberg.

U.S. voters headed to the polls on Tuesday and as expected by most analysts, the Democrats successfully took the majority in the House of Representatives, which could prove beneficial to the bond markets.

The old adage of "no risk, no reward" is still thrown around as part of investment vernacular, explicitly stating that those who take on a high degree of risk will reap the benefits of their emboldened maneuvers.

As the curtain closes on the bull run and the late market cycle, the natural propensity for fixed-income investors is to shift back to safer government debt, but in today’s rising rate environment, high-yielding bond strategies may be the safer option.
