Mixed Messages

The market-friendly overtures from the Fed may help keep bond yields in the current low range, but much of the good news from the Fed is already priced into the bond market. Investors may be more willing to downplay Fed news and refocus on economic data, which will ultimately drive the Fed’s decisions. Breaking out of the yield range now will likely depend on improving economic data over the next several weeks.

The Future According to the Bond Market

At any given time, current bond market pricing may provide a view of future economic growth, interest rates, inflation, and when the Federal Reserve (Fed) may raise interest rates, how fast, and by how much. The low level of longer-term bond yields, a flatter yield curve, and subdued inflation expectations all could signal a sluggish economic environment. Bond market indicators do not always come to fruition and taking a contrarian view from future indications may provide opportunities.
