What is BOND MARKET INDEX? What does BOND MARKET INDEX mean? BOND MARKET INDEX meaning

What is BOND MARKET INDEX? What does BOND MARKET INDEX mean? BOND MARKET INDEX meaning - BOND MARKET INDEX definition - BOND MARKET INDEX explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A bond index or bond market index is a method of measuring the value of a section of the bond market. It is computed from the prices of selected bonds (typically a weighted average). It is a tool used by investors and financial managers to describe the market, and to compare the return on specific investments. An index is a mathematical construct, so it may not be invested in directly. But many mutual funds and exchange-traded funds attempt to "track" an index (see index fund), and those funds that do not may be judged against those that do. Bond indices can be categorized based on their broad characteristics, such as whether they are composed of government bonds, municipal bonds, corporate bonds, high-yield bonds, mortgage-backed securities, syndicated or leveraged loans, etc. They can also be classified based on their credit rating or maturity. Bond indices tend to be total rate-of-return indices and are used mostly as such: to look at performance of a market over time. In addition to returns, bond indices generally also have yield, duration, and convexity, which is aggregated up from individual bonds. Bond indices generally include more individual securities than stock market indices do, and are broader and more rule-based. This allows portfolio managers to predict which type of issues will be eligible for the index. Most bond indices are weighted by market capitalization. This results in the bums problem, in which less creditworthy issuers with a lot of outstanding debt constitute a larger part of the index than more creditworthy ones. Bond indices are harder to replicate compared to stock market indices due to the large number of issues. Usually, portfolio managers define suitable benchmarks for their portfolios, and use an existing index or create blends of indices based on their investment mandates. They then purchase a subset of the issues available in their benchmark, and they use the index as a measure of the market portfolio's return to compare their own portfolio's performance against. Often the average duration of the market may not be the most appropriate duration for a given portfolio. Replication of an index's characteristics can be achieved by using bond futures to match the duration of the bond index.

Invesco's Big Opportunities in Fixed-Income ETFs
 
04:07
As investors navigate a rising rate environment and make adjustments to their fixed income portfolio, there are many strategies in the marketplace. One of those strategies is the BulletShares ETF suite, which Invesco Powershares acquired as part of Guggenheim's ETF business earlier this year. Invesco offers high-yield fixed-income ETFs through its BulletShares Corporate Bond Portfolios and for investors, the BulletShares High Yield Corporate Bond Portfolios. In addition to the higher yield, the ETFs also carry interest rate hedging since the bonds are typically held until maturity.

Key Things to Know about Fixed Income ETFs | Fidelity

Used correctly, fixed income can add diversification and a steady source of income to any investor’s portfolio. But how do you choose the right fixed-income ETF? The key to choosing the right fixed-income ETF lies in what it actually holds. U.S. bonds or international bonds? Government securities or corporate debt? Bonds that come due in two years or 20 years? Each decision determines the level of risk you’re taking and the potential return. There are many types of risks to consider with bond investing. Let’s talk more about two in particular: Credit risk and Interest-rate risk. Determining the level of credit risk you want to assume is an important first step when choosing a fixed-income ETF. Do you want an ETF that only holds conservative bonds—like bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury? Or do you want one holding riskier corporate debt? The latter may pay you a higher interest rate, but if the company issuing the bond goes bankrupt, you’ll lose out. ETFs cover the full range of available credit. Look carefully at the credit quality composition of the ETFs underlying holdings, and don’t be lured in by promises of high yields unless you understand the risks. Bonds are funny. Intuitively, you would assume that higher interest rates are good for bondholders, as they can reinvest bond income at higher prevailing interest rates. But rising interest rates may be bad news, at least in the short term. Imagine that the government issues a 10-year bond paying an interest rate of 2%. But shortly thereafter, the U.S. Federal Reserve hikes interest rates. Now, if the government wants to issue a new 10-year bond, it has to pay 3% a year in interest. No one is going to pay the same amount for the 2% bond as the 3% bond; instead, the price of the 2% bond will have to fall to make its yield as attractive as the new, higher-yielding security. That’s how bonds work, like a seesaw: As yields rise, prices fall and vice versa. Another important measure to consider when looking at interest rate risk is duration which helps to approximate the degree of price sensitivity of a bond to changes in interest rates. The longer the duration, the more any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Conversely, the shorter the duration, the less any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Let’s review a few other considerations when looking at fixed income ETFs. First, expense ratios: Because your expected return in a bond ETF is lower than in most stock ETFs, expenses take on extra importance. Generally speaking, the lower the fees, the better. Second, tracking difference: It can be harder to run a bond index fund than an equity fund, so you may see significant variation between the fund’s performance and the index’s returns. Try to seek out funds with low levels of tracking difference, meaning they track their index well. Finally, some bonds can be illiquid. As a result, it’s extra important to look out for bond ETFs with good trading volumes and tight spreads. There are other factors to watch for too, but these are the basics. ETFs can be a great tool for accessing the bond space, but as with anything, it pays to know what you’re buying before you make the leap.

Chief Investment Officer Greg Davis on the 2018 bond outlook
 
04:35
1/4/2018 Webcast: Our new leaders look ahead to 2018 Hear what the expectations are for bonds in today's market climate. Important information All investing is subject to risk, including possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. High-yield bonds generally have medium- and lower-range credit quality ratings and are therefore subject to a higher level of credit risk than bonds with higher credit quality ratings. For more information about Vanguard funds, visit https://vgi.vg/2G1dTre to obtain a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing. © 2018 The Vanguard Group, Inc.

Why Actively Managed High Yield Bond Funds Trump ETFs
 
03:37
Since the start of 2013, investors have poured nearly $9 billion into high-yield exchange traded funds. Gershon Distenfeld, director of high yield at AllianceBernstein, said it is clear that they should have opted for actively managed funds instead. 'The numbers tell the whole story. You don’t have to give fancy arguments. These things have been around for almost a decade and they have well underperformed the average active manager,' said Distenfeld. According to Distenfeld’s numbers, since the start of 2008, shortly after their inception, the two largest ETFs— HYG and JNK—delivered annualized returns of 6.2% and 6%, respectively, well short of the 8.3% annualized return for the Barclays US Corporate High-Yield Index. He adds that the top 20% of active high-yield mangers, as rated by Lipper, have also comfortably outperformed these two ETFs and have done it with lower volatility, as measured by risk-adjusted returns, and are not really much cheaper than active funds. 'The management fees are slightly lower. They are not the few basis points you find in the equity world. They are 40 and 50 basis point fees, but again, the numbers tell the whole story. Over eight years they have underperformed a high yield index by about 200 basis points and some of the top-tier managers by 300 or 400 basis points.'

Investing for Beginners - High Yield Bonds
 
19:35
Do High Yield bonds belong in your Roth IRA? Well, if you've been following the channel you know how I feel about bonds. Not a fan. But High Yield bonds are different. They pay more. Well, there is a reason they pay more.... they are riskier. In fact, look at 2007-2009 many high yield funds were down over 40%. In this video I am going to share with you why I think if you are going to take the risk to invest in high yield bonds, you may as well just go into stocks. Stocks have performed well ahead of high yield bonds, with a similar risk. Risk being defined as price swings of the portfolio. In fact, I will show you exactly how bonds work too, in terms of your returns. One thing you have to understand is there is NO capital appreciation in bonds. None. If you get capital appreciation today, it means capital depreciation MUST happen. It's pure, basic mathematics. Watch as I show you exactly what I mean. https://www.morningstar.com/funds/xnas/vwehx/quote.html https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/performance/vwehx/cumulative-returns https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/VWEHX/performance?p=VWEHX ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

Why Not? ------------------------------­- Markit iBoxx Indices Explained Script The bond market is the largest securities market in the world. Its sheer scale is rivalled only by its diverse nature. Bond prices are traded over the counter rather than through a centralised exchange and there can be multiple bonds from the same debt issuer. This makes bond pricing more complicated than equity pricing. Bonds also trade less frequently so liquidity can be limited. Investors have the opportunity to cut through this exceptionally diverse bond market and find new investment opportunities by using carefully constructed bond indices. Introduced in the 1980s, bond indices have been used to produce strategic, low-cost investment products in the market without picking individual bonds. Bond indices measure the performance of segments of the market. An index can be narrowed to specific subsets or risk parameters, like maturity or credit rating, to tailor the index to investors’ specific investment criteria. To maximise value from these bond market opportunities, Markit developed iBoxx indices, giving investors access to a broad range of liquid, investment-grade, and high-yield bond markets. Each iBoxx index is carefully designed by a team of experts who use a rigorous rules-based approach to distill the complexities of index construction into a simple output. The team starts by defining the scope and size of the market and then determines what criteria are needed to capture representative bond data. By classifying all the index components, it’s possible to create a larger set of related subindices. The iBoxx team determines the weighting of each index component and the index is meticulously back tested. The calculation of historical time series shows how it would have performed. This provides investors with valuable insight to compare and assess the risk-return profile of the index. After launching an index, Markit’s iBoxx team ensures data integrity by publishing daily calculations, rebalancing the index, and following best practices in index production. This ensures the index reflects its original objectives and supports the creation of tradeable products. Perhaps that’s why two of the largest global corporate bond ETFs were created using iBoxx indices. With iBoxx bringing simplicity and transparency into a historically complex and opaque asset class, you can have the visibility and insight needed to invest confidently.

BVTV: Demystifying US high yield – what’s driving YTD performance?

While 2018 has been a mixed year for bond investors so far, with many indices posting negative returns, the US high yield market has – perhaps surprisingly – managed to navigate its way through the turbulence. The sector’s intrinsically shorter duration than its investment grade counterpart may explain part of the divergence, but this is only part of the story. Watch the latest episode of BVTV to find out what other factors have caused the performance of the two markets to decouple so far this year.

High Yield Bond Run Far From Done Says Fund Manager
 
03:37
While it has not been a home run, high yield has certainly been a hit for investors this year, especially emerging market and energy issues, said Gary Herbert, portfolio manager for the Legg Mason BW Alternative Credit Fund . The Legg Mason BW Alternative Credit Fund is up 4.3% thus far in 2016, according to Morningstar. The $393 million fund has returned 43 basis points in the past 12 months, putting it the 56th percentile in Morningstar's long-short credit category. The fund sports a healthy trailing twelve month yield of 4.1%, according to Morningstar. Herbert said the best performing asset classes in his fund this year are high yield corporate bonds focused on emerging markets (EM) and the energy sector and longer duration treasury instruments. 'We pursue a barbell approach,' said Herbert. 'We have a large allocation of riskier, higher yielding assets like corporate credit on one end, and a large allocation of lower yield, low risk assets on the other end.' In terms of valuation, Herbert said the high yield market in aggregate is moderately overvalued. But the sectors and segments where he has exposure are the most discounted including the emerging markets, energy and some agency bonds. One year ago, about 70% LMANX's portfolio was invested in European RMBS. Herbert said the duration of the fund has varied between 4 to 8 years. 'It's skewed toward the longer duration when we've had extra safe haven assets in the portfolio and toward the shorter duration when we've reduced the extra safe haven assets,' said Herbert. Herbert said the fund expanded its emerging market holdings after the bottom in late January and continued to grow those positions until early April. Nevertheless, he is not adding additional EM or energy assets to the portfolio. Finally, Herbert said the fund maintains significant credit default swap positions on two sovereigns: Brazil and Argentina. 'We've seen significant spread tightening and we believe there is incremental spread tightening still to come, especially in Argentina,' said Herbert.

David points out that the current return is better than the 2.5% we got when the index bottomed out last May. However, the fifteen year average is around 5.25%. He examines what the markets can expect over the next few months. The Morningstar Corporate Bond Index reference in this video includes US corporate bonds with maturities of more than one year and at least USD 500 outstanding.

Is It a Bad Idea to Buy Bonds When Interest Rates Are Going Up?
 
06:12
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 Here’s something I bet you didn't know. The U.S. stock market, the size of the U.S. stock market is about $30 trillion. If you added up the value of all publicly traded stocks in the U.S., the market value of all those companies would come up to around $30 trillion, but what about bonds? Bonds are hardly ever mentioned or talked about in the financial media, but I bet you might be surprised to discover that the U.S. bond market is actually much bigger than the stock market. The U.S. bond market is estimated to be $40 trillion or more. That's right, the bond market is actually larger than the stock market and yet the financial media has almost all their attention and therefore our attention on the stock market. So what about bonds? Should you be buying bonds when interest rates are going up? You may have heard that when interest rates go up, bond values go down, which is true. Think of a seesaw or a teeter totter, the end that goes up is interest rates and the end that goes down is the underlying value of the bond. Bonds by the way are nothing more than a loan to a company or government or government agency. Typically bonds pay their interest twice a year, every six months, and when the loan comes due, they have a maturity date which could range anywhere from 90 days to 30 years, when you get your money back. If you look at long term returns of investments, let's say 15 year timeframe or longer, then it's no secret stocks have outperformed bonds by a large, large margin; so if stocks do better than bonds over the long term why not just have all of your money in stocks? Well the problem is while stocks tend to deliver nice, long term returns, but the short term oh, that could be a whole other story. Stocks on the short term can be extremely volatile. Just look what happened in the financial crisis of 2008. The S&P 500, the 500 largest publically traded companies in America, lost about 38% in value. So $100,000 in the S&P 500 at the end of 2008 was now worth $62,000. Ouch! That's a lot of short term volatility which tends to make you and I uncomfortable, to say the least. So how do we dampen or minimize that volatility? Imagine you have a sailboat and you have entered it into a race. One way to make your sailboat go faster is to make it lighter. But the lighter the sailboat, the more likely it is to capsize with a gust of wind. To prevent that you add weight or ballast to the sailboat. That slows the speed of the boat down but it reduces the odds of the boat capsizing and sinking. This is how you should think of bonds in your overall investment strategy. They are going to slow down the overall growth of your investment accounts but they are there to keep you from capsizing, to keep you from sinking during short-term periods of market volatility. So the answer to the question should you buy bonds, even when interest rates are going up, as a long term investor, the answer is a qualified yes, and here's what I mean by that. If you buy individual bonds and hold the bond until it matures or is called away early by the issuer then you'll receive the interest and get all your money back when the bond matures. The value of the bond can and will fluctuate while you own it, but it doesn't affect you if you hold it to maturity because then you get all your money back. This is why it's important to own individual bonds, especially in a rising interest rate environment, you don't lose money if you hold the bond until maturity. Why not just use a bond mutual fund? The problem with a bond mutual fund is it doesn't have a maturity date. People are constantly adding or withholding money from the mutual fund itself and typically at the wrong time. In a rising interest rate market, a lot of people in bond mutual funds take some or all of their money out of the mutual fund which forces the mutual fund manager to sell bonds even if they didn't want to. They have to generate the money to pay back the investors and that could drive the value or the price of bonds down even further. Ideally, you want to use individual bonds so you know for sure you get your money back when the bond matures. If you have a small account, and I would say a small account would be $200,000 or less, then you may not have enough money to properly diversify into individual bonds and you may have to still use bond mutual funds and if that's the case in a rising interest rate market you want to focus on short term bond funds or floating rate bond funds. Buying individual bonds as part of your investment strategy will help you move one step closer to experiencing your version of an incredible retirement doing what you want, when you want.

It’s similar to borrowing money from a lender if you’ve ever purchased a home or car before. Sometimes businesses need more money than the banks will offer them, so they issue bonds as a way to raise more capital. Governments can also issue bonds when they need more money for things like roads or parks. Bonds are considered safer on the risk spectrum for investments, but they also typically carry a lower return. Benjamin Graham, author of the intelligent investor and Warren Buffets mentor, recommends holding a portfolio of 75% stocks and 25% bonds during a bull market and 75% bonds and 25% stocks during a bear market. As opposed to other investments which are considered equity, bonds are considered debt which means that if a company goes under, it must repay all bondholders before stockholders. This is due to the fixed interest nature of the bond. When the investor purchases a bond at what’s called the face value, they are paid interest, known as the coupon or yield. The reason it’s referred to as coupon is because back when bonds were actually paper, investors would physically have to clip coupons to redeem their interest. Anyway, the investor is paid a coupon on the bond until the loan is fully paid back by the issuer. This is known as the maturity date. Interest payment frequency and the maturity date is determined prior to the purchase of the bond. For example, if I purchase a $1,000, 3-year bond with a 5% coupon, I know I’ll receive $50 in interest each year for 3 years. Now it’s important to note that Bonds can vary in risk and return A AAA bond is the best bond you can buy while a Ba bond and lower are more speculative and are known as Junk bonds When it comes to bonds, the higher the return, the higher the risk. The lower the return, the lower the risk. Bonds with a longer maturity date are also riskier and carry a higher return. Typically government bonds will be safer than corporate bonds. When it comes to taxation, corporate bonds are taxed regularly while some bonds like municipal and other government bonds are tax-exempt. A bond can also be secured or unsecured With an unsecured bond, you may lose all of your investment if the company fails while with a secured bond, the company pledges specific assets to give shareholders if they fail to repay their bonds. Although bonds are considered a “safer” investment, they still do come with risks. When you purchase a bond, interest rates are out of your control and may fluctuate. Interest rates are controlled by the U.S. treasury, the federal reserve, and the banking industry. This means that if specified in your agreement, the company may be able to issue a call provision which is an early redemption of the bond. While not always the case, companies will take advantage of lower interest rates to pay back loans early. This leaves you with a lower return than what you expected. Bonds are also inversely proportional to interest rates so when interest rates go up, bonds go down and vice versa. Bonds can also be traded between investors prior to its maturity date. A bond that’s traded below the market value is said to be trading at a discount while a bond trading for more than it’s face value is trading at a premium. Bonds can be a great way to diversify your investment portfolio, however, they can also be quite complex. You can use investment platforms like Fidelity, E-Tade, or Charles Shwabb to learn more about specific types of bonds. For today’s video, we will be using Fidelity.

Say “No” to Bond Mutual Funds
 
02:29
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 Someone recently asked for our opinion on two different bond mutual funds. Both of them are low cost index funds from Vanguard. While we are big believers in index mutual funds when it comes to investing in the stock market, quite frankly we aren't big fans of bond mutual funds of any kind, even low cost index bond funds and here is why. When you buy an individual bond and hold it to maturity it works kind of like a CD. You are paid the promised interest rate from the issuer, and upon maturity the issuer gives you all your money back. This way, it's almost impossible to lose money investing in bonds if you hold the bond until maturity, or until it's redeemed early by the issuer. Here's the problem when you buy bonds inside a mutual fund. Mutual funds have no stated maturity date so you give up the assurance that you get your money back if the bond is held to maturity, because the mutual fund never matures. In addition, the income from the bonds could be diluted as new investors add money or withdraw money from the mutual fund, even if you individually aren't withdrawing or adding money to the mutual fund. The one advantage bond mutual funds do have is diversification. You get the benefit of investing in lots of different bonds. If you have $200,000 or more that can be allocated to bonds, we think your better approach is to buy individual bonds. This gives you enough money to buy enough individual bond positions to have proper diversification. For smaller accounts, your best bet is still going to be sticking with low cost bond index mutual funds and ETFs. Now you know why we think you should just say no to bond mutual funds. Having an investment system that you have trust and confidence in will put you one step closer to experiencing your version of an incredible retirement - doing what you want, when you want.
