    Will the Bond Market Rebound along with Equity Markets?

    Is Volatility Set to Drop Further after Stock Market Rebound? US bond markets found some relief in the week ending February 16, as bond yields retreated from their multiyear high at the end of the week. The issue that was squeezing bond investors hasn’t gone away. The inherent risk of rising yields still exists, and last week’s respite could prove to be temporary at least for bond markets.

    What Triggered the Stock Market Panic This Month?

    The recent rout in the equity market was fueled by concerns over rising interest rates, which could increase costs for the industry.

    Why January Fed Meeting Could Impact Bond Markets

    The reopening of the US government on Tuesday, hawkish comments from the central banks of Europe and Japan, and President Trump’s “America is open for business” speech at the World Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland, had little impact on the bond market. According to the latest COT (Commitment of Traders) report released on January 26 by the CFTC (Chicago Futures Trading Commission), speculators increased their short positions on the ten-year bond with net short positions increasing from 89,259 contracts to 117,877 contracts.

    Are Bond Yields Set to Move Higher this Week?

    Why the US Bond Market Moved Lower Last Week

    The key reason for the bond market sell-off was the fear that inflation is set to increase in the months ahead. According to data reported on January 12, the consumer price index (or CPI) rose 0.1%, bringing the year-over-year inflation figure to 2.1%. This rise in inflation could keep rate hike expectations elevated, leading to higher yields and lower bond prices.

A flattening yield curve, if progress could lead to a yield curve inversion, could be a signal for a future recession. The reason for the yields falling lower was the lower level of inflation expectations.
