Comment of the day, Eric Parnell, CFA

The business cycle winds are at the bond investors' back. We are currently in the second-longest economic expansion in U.S. history. Maybe it will last forever, just like maybe I will live forever, but history is increasingly on the other side of the growth cycle. And the fact that the U.S. Federal Reserve is now raising interest rates assertively despite still relatively benign economic growth is not working in the favor of a continued expansion going forward. A recession will eventually strike. And recessions (barring the hyperinflationary kind, which any future recession is not shaping up to be) are bullish for bonds, which helps explain the rapidly flattening yield curve.
