    10-Year, 2-Year Yield Curve Under Watchful Eye

    The capital markets are definitely keeping a watchful eye on the 2-year and 10-year yield curve, which briefly inverted during Wednesday’s market session.

    Could We See Zero Interest Rates?

    Sentiment seemed to take a dramatic turn following the FOMC announcement that rates would be cut 25 basis points, yet this would only be part of a “midcycle adjustment to policy,” according to Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. “Let me be clear: What I said was it’s not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts,” Powell said. You would do that if you saw real economic weakness and you thought that the federal funds rate needed to be cut a lot.

    A Recession Signal is Flashing in Current Yield Curve

    Market volatility is opening the pathway for investors to flock to safe haven government debt, which is causing yields to fall. As such, a yield curve inversion—a typical sign ahead of a recession—is forming with respect to the 2- and 10-year Treasury yields. This should cause the rate-sensitive 2-year note yield to fall as well, but that hasn’t been the case even with the change in the central bank’s interest rate policy.

    Debunking 3 Investor Myths on Fixed Income Exposure

    It’s easy to overlook bonds as opposed to equities given their more static returns in nature as opposed to the more dynamic stocks that can move and shake when markets are roaring, as well as vice versa. While bonds may not be ideal for the adrenalin-fueled investor, they can still gain that much-needed fixed income exposure via exchange-traded funds. Janet Brown, a finance contributor at Forbes, cited three common misconceptions investors have when it comes to core fixed income exposure—bonds are a high risk proposition when rates rise, they don’t generate enough returns and they’re only ideal for retirees.

"As a credit debt holder, you've got no upside, you only have downside [at this point]," said Pilar Gomez-Bravo, director of fixed income Europe for MFS Investment Management.
