    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.

    Should We Start Ignoring the Yield Curve Inversion?

    Based on comments from key members of the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) and the mismatch between the economic performance and signals of a flattening yield curve, it’s tempting to stop depending on the slope of the yield curve (BND) (AGG) as a tool to determine recession risk. It’s important to understand that no financial indicator is foolproof, and the same can be said about the flattening yield curve in the current economic climate. As Fed Chair Jerome Powell said, the indicator might not have relevance in a low-inflation (TIP) environment.

    This Fed Member Predicts Yield Curve Inversion by the End of 2018

    In a presentation given by James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, he said the yield curve could invert by the end of 2018. Although the presentation was four months ago, it still holds true since the yield curve has flattened more than what it was in December 2017. In his presentation, Bullard laid out a few conditions that could lead to the yield curve inversion.

  • Why Rising Inflation Failed to Raise Long-Term Yields

    Why Rising Inflation Failed to Raise Long-Term Yields

    The primary reason cited by the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) for holding off on interest rate hikes since 2016 was lagging inflation growth. Whenever the Fed signaled rate hikes, the yield curve flattened since investors were not convinced that inflation (TIP) growth would pick up the pace, which would limit the Fed’s ability to raise rates. The Fed has set a target of 2% inflation (VTIP) growth, at which point the economy is expected to be running at a normal pace.

  • What Makes the Yield Curve Turn Flat or Invert?

    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.

    How Recent Economic Data Affected Bond Markets

    In the recent weeks, the performance of the US bond markets (BND) has been influenced by trade conflicts between the US and other nations, primarily China (FXI), rather than the underlying economic performance. First, there were the steel and aluminum import tariffs, which were followed by $50 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese imports. The fear of a full-blown trade war reduced risk appetite and increased demand for safe-haven assets like bonds, which further pushed yields lower.

    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.

    Despite a valiant recovery attempt Friday, sellers remain a force to be reckoned with. That, it seems, is the message accompanying this morning’s market weakness. But while passive investors continue to pray for a better day, tactical traders are using the volatility to their advantage. Or at least they should be. The key to befriending volatility lies in fading the extremes.
