All fall down….what next rise or continue to correct?

The inevitable happened last week. Someone played the party pooper to the equity markets. Not surprisingly, that someone was the bond markets. Fear took hold. Fear that the fear of inflation will prompt central bankers to tighten the quicker. After last week’s episode everyone will be watching U S Bond markets with a hawk eye.

Investors getting nervous…why?

  • Fed Chief while sending cool message to the markets said that the higher yields revealed optimism on the outlook for growth in the economy, reassuring the markets that loose monetary policy will continue but to the very satisfaction of the market participants.
  • Bonds yield in U S touching high of 1.61%, lastly settled at 1.45%, much higher from the lows of 0.55% during 2020.
  • German Bonds yield settled at -0.26% while that of U K settled high at 0.82%.
  • U S Bonds yield were hovering around 2% during normal time of the economy so far away from that level even after reaching to current level of 1.45%. The market participants are reading too fast and too much ahead of time.
  • Fingers crossed for the short time scenario for the different asset class, so let’s keep our eyes and ears open to readjust to the needs of the time.
