The Fed has been on a mortgage bond buying spree since May with a goal of $30 billion in purchases in mind, according to a MarketWatch report. ETF investors can put mortgage bond funds on their radars as the central bank takes on this hefty endeavor and ramps up their purchases through the end of the year. The purchase of mortgage bonds was something the Fed implemented over 10 years ago during the financial crisis in 2008—of course, mortgage-backed securities at the time were deemed as toxic assets that helped cause the crisis.
Moody's Investors Service has placed some of the ratings of 17 Vietnamese banks on review for downgrade.

In the first half of this year, fixed income ETFs saw inflows of $74 billion, including a staggering $26 billion in June alone, said CFRA Research Director of ETF & Mutual Fund Research Todd Rosenbluth in a note out Tuesday. Year to date, five bond ETFs are among the top 10 U.S.-listed ETFs in terms of new assets added and all five of those funds are iShares or Vanguard products. “While the asset manager is the US ETF industry heavyweight with $1.6 trillion in assets and a leading 39% market share, iShares is even more dominant in the bond asset class with a 49% share,” said Rosenbluth.
Bond ETFs are experiencing big inflows as the Federal Reserve shifts away from the rate hikes of last year and hints at interest rate cuts ahead. Mutual funds and ETFs that track bonds just saw $12.1 billion of inflows for the week ended July 17, which marked the 28th consecutive week of inflows, the Wall Street Journal reports. To put this in perspective, bond funds accumulated $1.7 billion in inflows over the past decade, according to a Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysis of EPFR Global data.
