99. What It Means: 10-Year Treasury Bond Increase -

Bonds Away

Recently, one of the most significant market moves in history took place. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond increased from 2.33 percent to a recent top of 3.57 percent. While the absolute change may seem small, this amounts to a 53 percent increase in yield. Moves of that magnitude have profound impacts on investor returns. Zero coupon bonds offer the most elasticity to changes in interest rates. As a consequence of the recent spike in long-term interest rates, the ZROZ ETF declined 24 percent. Who says you can’t lose money in bonds? With rates still far below their historical norms, we can expect more, although less dramatic, increases in interest rates. The first question that comes to mind is “why”? The second question is “what to do about it”?
