Here Go Yields Again!


The markets have been quite a wild ride these past couple of years, with much of the volatility driven by inflation and rate hikes. Q2 of this year gave us a breather, and many thought things were settling down. Unfortunately, guess what? A strong ADP job report and hawkish Fed minutes have brought rate hikes back into the spotlight, and now most believe that the Fed will start raising rates again.


As a result, treasury yields have shot up like fireworks! The 2-year and 10-year yields are reaching levels reminiscent of 2007, right before the Great Financial Crisis.


Nobody knows for sure how high rates will go this time around. But one thing's for certain: investors need to have a solid investment process in place to navigate future volatility. Managing risk, including drawdown risk, should be a top priority. That way, investors will be better able to achieve their long-term financial objectives.
