  • Inflation is the main reason behind the increase of interest rates by the Federal Reserve (the “Fed”).

  • Pending the Fed meeting next September, we expect three additional increases of 0.75% each.

    • The bond market is affected by rising interest rates. Today, bond prices are higher than stock prices for four reasons:
      - Higher interest rates
      - Withdrawal of liquidity from the financial and banking system
      - Absence of market makers since banks affected in the 2008 correction can no longer accommodate a large volume of bonds
      - Revised credit rating of bonds with a looming US recession.

  • Investors are buying bonds to achieve returns amid low interest rates. They should, however, avoid concentrating their investments in bonds alone and borrowing to buy these bonds.
