    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. Investor anxiety about rising rates was triggered by comments from San Francisco Fed president John Williams on Friday, February 2. During his speech, Williams said he envisioned three or four hikes this year, and investor anxiety escalated further after the non-farm payrolls report indicated impressive job gains in January.

    What’s the Reason behind Surging Bond Yields?

    The US bond market’s (BND) troubles escalated last week as inflation expectations continued to rise. The first reason was the January FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting. The Fed left interest rates unchanged at that meeting but changed its outlook on inflation, saying that inflation (TIP) could pick up and stay near the 2% target.

    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. The core PCE (personal consumption expenditures) inflation data could be import since the Fed prefers this measure of inflation when making interest rate decisions.

    Are Bond Yields Set to Move Higher this Week?

    The US bond (BND) markets remained under pressure and closed lower for the week ended January 19. At the beginning of the week, a news article about China planning to cut down its purchases of US Treasuries triggered an initial sell-off. The US Treasury is not able to issue any more debt until the debt ceiling is raised, which could increase the volatility in the bond markets.

    Your Guide to the US Debt Ceiling

    Are We Heading toward a Government Shutdown? The debt ceiling is a limit set by US Congress on how much debt the US federal government can carry at any given time. The first known creation of debt ceiling dates to 1917, when the US Treasury Department was allowed to issue bonds to fund expenses during World War I. In 1974, through the Budget Control Act, the current budget process came into effect.

    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.

    Will Bond Yield Spreads Continue to Get Narrower?

    The troubles surrounding a flattening yield curve extended into the new year with the spread between the US ten-year and two-year Treasuries narrowing to a level last seen before the financial crisis of 2008. 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.
