  • What Does the Flattening of the Yield Curve Mean for Gold?

    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.

    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. The Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND), which tracks the performance of the bond markets, rose 0.06% for the week ended June 15 and closed at 78.92.

    Will Bond Market Investors Benefit from Risk-Off Trade?

    The US bond market seems to be benefiting from multiple crises around the world. First, there was the crisis in emerging markets, which could further escalate if the US dollar continues to appreciate, and then there are uncertainties about Italian debt, the G7 meeting, and the upcoming central bank meetings this week. The Vanguard Total Bond Market (BND) ETF, which tracks the performance of the bond markets, was down by 0.28% for the week ending June 8 and closed at 78.9.

    Strong Jobs Report Had a Limited Impact on the Bond Market

    The US bond market was volatile in May. The ten-year yield reached a peak of 3.1% and fell to a low of 2.8% in a span of three weeks. The wild swings in the bond markets were a result of multiple factors including the dovish FOMC statement, weaker-than-expected inflation report, and a rebound in trade and geopolitical tensions. Last week, bond markets’ limited reaction to the stellar jobs report was a surprise. Although a strong jobs report increases the odds of a rate hike, the developments surrounding trade wars and domestic political uncertainties kept bond yields under pressure.

    A Bullish View on Short-Term Treasury ETFs

According to the latest Commodity Futures Trading Commission data, short-term traders turned to a bullish wager on two-year notes in the week ended May 22, Bloomberg reports. The shift in strategy came days after yields on the maturity, the most vulnerable benchmark note when it comes to expectations for Federal Reserve policy, hit its the highest in a decade.

    Are Bond Yields Taking a Breather?

    The US bond market had some relief from its ongoing slide as the Fed’s May meeting minutes were less hawkish than expected. The Fed also wants to adjust the rate paid on excess reserves by 20 basis points on June 13, keeping the federal funds spread at 0.25%. Last week (ended May 25), the ten-year (IEF) yield closed at 2.9%, depreciating by 13 basis points.

  • Will Yield Spreads Continue to Decline?

    Will Yield Spreads Continue to Decline?

    The US bond markets remained under selling pressure as bond yields, especially at the short end of the curve, continued to shoot up, while the long-term yields remained subdued. The US Fed through its May post-meeting statement said that inflation would reach the 2% target soon, which was interpreted as a signal for a faster pace of rate hikes. An inverted yield curve, where short-term (SHY) yields are higher than long-term yields (TLT) is considered a warning sign for future recessions, and thus the yield spread has a place in the leading economic index.

    Why Bond Yields Could Increase This Week

    US ten-year bond market yields have scaled a new seven-year peak at 3.07, their highest level since July 2011. This 100-basis-point move, which happened over the span of a little over eight months, has taken its toll on bond prices. Thanks to rising crude prices, increased chances of higher inflation have been fueling the recent rally in rates.

    Why Last Week’s Events Made the Bond Markets Interesting

    US bond market yields continue to trend higher, but their overall movement last week was limited. Despite this limited movement, a few takeaways from the week hint at how interesting the bond markets could get in the future. The market’s reaction can be interpreted as investors seeing that the Federal Reserve will stick to its tightening stance in the future and that a change in inflation expectations will drive bond yields.

    Analyzing the Bond Market This Week

    US bond markets were the main focus in a week dominated by earnings. In the previous week, the US ten-year bond yield broke above 3% for the first time in four years. Last week’s reports on the first-quarter GDP and the Employee Cost Index signaled that the Fed could increase rates three times this year, which pushed bond yields higher. By the end of the week, the yield retreated from the higher levels. The euphoria around the 3% mark seems to be declining. Whether the yield is at 3%, 2.96%, 3.1%, the overall trend is important. The trend seems to be tilted towards higher yields. ...

    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.
