For example, the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) and the iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) are among the top 10 ETFs in terms of year-to-date outflows.

    Fixed-Income ETF Investors Should Think About a Tax-Loss Harvesting

    Bond investors should consider the current status of the fixed-income environment and look ways to incorporate ETFs as a means to effectively harvest potential losses.

    China’s dollar-denominated junk bonds have been on a skyward move since the beginning of 2018 followed recently by 13 consecutive days of declines, but it appears that yields on these below-investment grade debt issues could be on the move up again. While yields were declining since mid-July as a result of the Chinese government undertaking an easing path to give its economy a shot in the arm, Dongxing Securities (HK) Asset Management Co. says this measure could only be temporary. “Although market sentiment has improved quite a bit for now, no one knows at this point how long the easing policy will sustain,” said Chak Lau, a credit investment manager at Dongxing Securities (HK) Asset Management Co. “It’s difficult to say whether the central bank will stop the music and continue to emphasize the deleveraging campaign again.
