    Why Interest Rate Spreads Are Decreasing Again

    What Do March Leading Indicators Signal for the US Economy? The US bond markets were back in focus as the chatter about the yield curve flattening has grown louder in recent weeks. The decision of the US FOMC during its March meeting to increase the Fed funds rate by 0.25% had an uneven impact on the yield curve.

    Why Yield Curve Steepening Could Be Short-Lived

    The US bond markets were under pressure as the yield curve continued flattening until Wednesday last week. The yield spread between the two-year and ten-year reached a decade low of 41 basis points on Wednesday, but a rebound in commodity prices triggered higher inflation expectations and led to the sharp rally of US bond yields last week. The Vanguard Total Bond Market (BND) ETF, which tracks the performance of the bond markets, ended the previous week at 79.02, a fall of 0.77% for the week ending April 20.

    What Makes the Yield Curve Turn Flat or Invert?

    It’s difficult to pinpoint a single reason for changes to the yield curve’s slope. First, any changes to the Fed’s interest rate immediately impact the yield curve at the short end, and the projections for long-term rates dictate the changes at the long end of the curve. For instance, the recent rate hike at the Fed’s March meeting had varying impacts on the US Treasury yield curve.

    Why the Markets Are Worried about the Yield Curve

    The spread, or the difference between the yields of the ten-year US Treasury and the two-year US Treasury (BND), has fallen below 50 basis points for the first time since 2007. According to Investopedia, “A yield curve is a line that plots the interest rates, at a set point in time, of bonds having equal credit quality but differing maturity dates.” The most common yield curve traced by the investing and academic communities is the U.S. Treasury (GOVT) curve that plots the yields across various maturities. A normal yield curve is upward sloping, and long-term yields are higher than short-term yields.

    Bond Market Pain Could Continue This Week

    US bond markets’ relief after a dovish FOMC statement was short lived as geopolitical tensions took center stage. US bond yields rose along the curve dominated by a sharp increase in yields at the short-end of the curve, which reignited fears of the yield curve flattening. The 2s10s spread has now reduced to 45 basis points and the 2s30s spread has been reduced to a fresh cycle low of 66 basis points.

    Is It Time for Fiscal Expansion?

    During his keynote at the tenth conference organized by the International Research Forum on Monetary Policy in March 2018, Boston Federal Reserve president Eric Rosengren said that the United States has been lagging behind some European economies (VGK), which are building excess fiscal policy buffers by following austerity measures. Recently, the Trump administration has announced tax cuts for businesses and individuals and proposed increased spending, adding to the fiscal deficit. Total US debt has now surpassed $21 trillion and it is expected to increase further as the government deficit is likely to balloon in the months ahead.

    Can the Bond Market’s Relief after the FOMC Statement Continue?

    The US bond markets were relieved last week after the FOMC’s (Federal Open Market Committee) statement regarding its 0.25% rate hike sounded more dovish than expected. This forecast came as a relief to the bond markets, which had been reeling from fears about rising bond yields. The two-year bond yields declined for the first time in many months in response to the FOMC statement. The Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND) ended the previous week at $79.52, depreciating by 0.01% for the week ended March 23.

    The US bond markets were the only asset class that failed to rally after the February jobs report was released on March 9, 2018. The bond market, however, suffered further losses as every other segment of the jobs report pointed to a strong employment market, leaving the bias tilted toward further rate hikes. Rising rates are negative for the bond market, and investors holding these bonds tend to lose their asset value.

    Why the Tables Have Turned for Bond Market Investors

    Financial markets have witnessed an abrupt change in their approach to bond markets over the past two months. Up until the end of 2017, markets were not convinced that inflation could rise according to the Fed’s expectations, and so long-term rates (TLT) did not rise in tandem with short-term rates (SHY), leading the yield curve to flatten. Then the employment report for January indicated that worker wages had increased more than expected, which allowed the chance for inflation to rise.

    The intensity of recent volatility captured the top spot on the list as investors ponder a return to the markets. Technology stocks have recouped most of the losses from the start of the month, while the signed bill that grants a hike in military spending continued to drive interest towards the aerospace & defense sector. The recent sharp rise in government bond yields also caught attention as well as high-yield bonds, which trended thanks to a growing desire to diversify away from more volatile assets.
