    The Markets Have Crashed, but Some Stocks Are Attractive Now

    The bull market has lasted nine and a half years, but 2018 has seen three big market crashes, and the current one is the biggest. The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index has plummeted 9% in October, and the broader S&P 500 index (SPY) has fallen 6.4% as of October 11. Technology stocks have been the biggest gainers during the bull market, and investors now seem to be booking profits.

    Why a Fed Policy Mistake Is Worrying Markets

    A Hawkish Fed Still Can't Kill This Market

    Ever since the Federal Reserve announced its first quantitative easing (QE) program in December 2008 many bears have predicted that the market would undergo a substantial correction when the program ended and interest rates were allowed to rise again. If lower interest rates and cheap money helped to drive equity prices higher, then higher rates would drive stock prices back down when those increased rates finally occurred. The unwinding of the quantitative easing programs has not been difficult for the market to handle.

    Another Day of Rotation, but of a Different Sort

    It was another day of rotation Monday, but this time it was the big-cap FAANG names and Apple , in particular, that were the beneficiaries. The DJIA lagged primarily due to the financials, which is the reversal of what occurred last Wednesday when the Dow outperformed and the Nasdaq lagged.

    Should You Be Worried about the Possible Yield Curve Inversion?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different times.

    Fed Officials Are Divided on the Significance of the Yield Curve

    While most Fed officials agreed on the need to keep raising rates and the concerns posed by the trade disputes, there was disagreement among them regarding the significance of the yield curve. Some participants argued that in the United States (SPY) (IVV), the inverted yield curve has often preceded recessions. As such, they think that the significance of an inverted yield curve may have declined compared to historical records.

    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.

    Pressure Mounts for Emerging Market Bond ETFs

    Dollar-denominated emerging market bonds and related exchange traded funds are under increased pressure as the Federal Reserve hikes interest rates, trade tensions escalate and the U.S. dollar strengthens. Year-to-date, the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) and Invesco Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio (PCY) , which both track USD-denominated emerging market debt, declined 6.5% and 8.2%, respectively.

    Tight Labor Markets Suggest Rates Could Stay High

    GURUSHINA: Well, since you’ve mentioned it, it might be a good idea to talk about your thoughts about the interest rate environment. Because the policy accommodation withdrawal by major central banks is already underway, so do you still expect interest rates, especially rates in the U.S. to go up by the end of the year, and also what about Europe, because Europe was kind of lagging behind the U.S. in this regard?

    Why Commodities Have Outperformed Other Assets in 2018

    NATALIA GURUSHINA: Welcome, I’m Natalia Gurushina, Chief Emerging Markets Economist at VanEck. With global rates normalizing, geopolitics still posing major risks, and with one of the longest bull runs in U.S. stocks apparently stalling, 2018 might be a year of paradigm shift. I am here today with VanEck CEO, Jan van Eck, to discuss his outlook, macroeconomic outlook, and also to talk about his views on the most appealing opportunities in this challenging environment. So let me ask you a very simple question first: Is there still an investment case for real assets, including commodities?

    Are Rising Rates Affecting Housing Markets?

    The US Fed has clearly communicated its intentions to continue the rate hike path at the June monetary policy meeting, as the US economy continued to expand. The US Fed hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at that meeting and left the doors open for two more hikes in 2018. 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.

    How the Yield Spread Changed the Outlook for the Economy

    An inverted yield curve, in which short-term yields (SHY) are higher than long-term yields (TLT), is considered as a warning sign for a future recession. The LEI’s economic model uses the yield spread between the ten-year Treasury bond (IEF) and the federal funds rate (TBF) as one of the components. The May LEI report indicated that this yield spread increased from ~1.2 in April to ~1.3 in May. The use of the term “symmetric” along with the inflation target in the May FOMC meeting minutes led to the increase of yield spreads in May.

    What Bond Market Investors Are Watching for This Week

    The US bond market continued to rebound as trade tensions and the limited appreciation in equity markets pushed demand for bonds higher, depressing the bond yields for a second consecutive week. Bond investors seem to be questioning the US Fed’s enthusiasm for higher rates as bond yields continued to retreat. There weren’t any major market-moving economic data releases last week, which could have led to the fall in bond yields.

    Will Risk-Off Trade Push Bond Markets Higher?

    The US bond market had a limited reaction to the Fed’s 25-basis-point rate hike and the 0.20% increase in interest paid on excess reserves. The spread between the US two-year and ten-year bonds narrowed to 36 basis points, which led to a further flattening of the yield curve in the previous week.

    ETFs Slip as Federal Reserve Hikes Interest Rate

    Stock and bond ETFs slipped on Wednesday as the Federal Reserve announced another moderate rate hike and stated its intent to raise rates two more times later this year. Following the Fed's announcement mid-Wednesday to raise interest rates 25 basis points, effectively raising the federal funds rate from 1.75% to 2%, the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF) dipped 0.2% and the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) fell 0.3%, which wasn't a surprise as older debt with lower yields become less attractive in a higher rate environment. The Invesco DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish Fund (NYSEArca: UUP) , which tracks dollar movements against a basket of developed currencies, strengthened 0.2% in response to the tightening monetary policy.
