    Well, I mentioned that she needed to realize that short-term investments — say with periods of one to three years — are at risk of losing their principal. After all, in a few days, the stock market can easily lose 10% or more!

    4 Short-Term Bond ETFs for Attractive Yield-Generating Plays

    Interest rates have steadily pushed higher in recent months, and the Federal Reserve has signaled its intent to raise interest rates at least two more times before the end of the year to head off an overheating economy with high inflation. While rising interest rates can drag on bond fund returns, they have less of an impact on bond funds with shorter durations. "From post-crisis through 2017, investors in fixed income have had to move out along the curve to generate some yield, extending some duration risk, or taking a dip in quality," Alfonzo Bruno, a research analyst for fixed-income strategies with Morningstar, told CNBC.

    Should You Be Worried about the Possible Yield Curve Inversion?

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

The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of upcoming recessions in the past.

    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.

    Howard Marks: This Is the Single Biggest Equity Market Risk

    Howard Marks said at the 2018 Delivering Alpha Conference on July 23 that the Fed’s hawkish stance is the single biggest risk for the equity market (SPY). After maintaining ultra-low interest rates (TLT)(SHY) for a decade, the Fed has been continuing its gradual rate hike process since December 2015. It already hiked its key interest rate for the seventh time between December 2015 and June 2018, each time by 25 basis points.

    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.

    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.
