    Overview of the TLT ETF

    When looking at the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) exchange-traded fund (ETF), it is important to consider whether or not interest rates are likely to rise or remain low. Here, the relationship between treasury yield bonds and interest rates is key to understand. Generally speaking, if you predict interest rates to rise in the future, it is best to avoid long-term bonds (such as the TFT, which is a 20-year treasury bond) which may lock in a lower interest rate.

    Market Analyst: Bond Rush Could Intensify Amid Coronavirus Fears

    “Our big concern is that investors get more and more nervous,” said Wells Fargo Securities’ Michael Schumacher. At this point, the worst case scenario is that the virus outbreak begins to negatively impact the global economies. “The worst case I would say with respect to the virus is that it has a massive effect on the global economy and knocks yields down to let’s say somewhere in the low ones for the 10-year,” he added.

    Return of 20-Year Treasury Note May Fuel Corporate Bonds

    In order to help reduce a $1 trillion dollar budget deficit, the Treasury Department announced earlier this year that it would reintroduce a 20-year bond. According to an article in the International Finance Review, this new issue should help add liquidity as well as provide a hedge for corporate assets—a move that’s also a positive for corporate bonds.

    Will Safe Haven Government Debt be the Next Asset Bubble?

    2019 was another good year for ETFs, but particularly fixed income funds, which saw a deluge of activity as the U.S.-China trade war dumped a heavy dose of volatility on the markets. Investors scrambled towards what are deemed safe-haven assets in government debt, bringing yields down and bond prices up—could this create the next asset bubble? “Looking at the financial landscape today, there are some signs of trouble: the stock market keeps going up, venture capital may also be over-valued, and firms are highly leveraged,” wrote Allison Schrager in Quartz.
