    3 Trending Short-Term Corporate Bond ETFs

    In the current rising rate environment, a number of financial advisors are suggesting investors to treat fixed income like the sun and limit prolonged exposure. In this case, as the Federal Reserve's predilection for raising interest rates does not appear to be changing anytime soon, it's best to take advantage of these short-term rate adjustments by limiting duration. In the current economic landscape, Collin Martin, director of fixed income for Charles Schwab's Schwab Center for Financial Research, is advising bond investors to avoid fixed-income investments with long-term yields in the interim.

    U.S., Japan Yields Spike on Tighter Monetary Policy Reports

    U.S. government debt yields got a boost today, piggybacking on increases in Japanese bond yields as reports surfaced last week suggesting that Japan may tighten their monetary policy. Japanese 10-year yields climbed four basis points--its highest level since February and the U.S. 10-year responded with its own 7-basis point jump to its current 2.96 percent yield as of 2:15 p.m. ET. The Bank of Japan is currently holding preliminary discussions to adjust its interest-rate targeting and stock-buying techniques--a move communicated by the BOJ as one that does not suggest a tightening of monetary policy, but one that the markets are interpreting as such. "Although [the Bank of Japan] tried to really make clear this wasn’t a tightening policy, the market looked at it as another step away from easy money," said Kathy Jones, chief fixed income strategist for the Schwab Center for Financial Research.

    3 Bond ETFs Warren Buffett Would Actually Like

    "If you had to choose between buying long-term bonds or equities, I would choose equities in a minute," Buffett told CNBC's "Squawk Box" in an interview earlier this year. Buffett continued to lambaste bonds, telling Berkshire Hathaway shareholders in an annual letter that debt issues were not a lower-risk investment over the long term compared to stocks. "I want to quickly acknowledge that in any upcoming day, week or even year, stocks will be riskier — far riskier — than short-term U.S. bonds," Buffett wrote.

    How Big a Problem Could US Debt Become?

    If we turn back the clock to before the recession, we find that US debt levels weren’t this high, and unconventional programs like quantitative easing helped the economy recover from the Great Recession. The US Treasury must deal with higher interest rates and borrow more to keep the economy running, and this cycle could turn into a downward spiral unless revenues increase. The US Treasury is the king of the credit markets, and it’s followed by investment-grade (LQD)(VCSH) bonds and junk (JNK) bonds.
