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.

iBoxx bond indices from Markit (http://markit.com) can bring visibility and insight to your investment strategies. Whiteboard animation produced by Wienot Films (http://wienotfilms.com). ------------------------------- Wienot Films (http://wienotfilms.com) is an Austin-based production company that creates fun, refreshingly simple, yet amazingly effective whiteboard and computer animated explainer videos that turn complex ideas into concise, easy-to-understand stories that help change hearts and minds and spur action. You might also hear their videos referred to as explanatory videos, doodle videos, pitch videos, scribe videos, startup videos, landing page videos, home page videos, etc. Whatever you call them, they're simple, fun, and tell your story! Learn more at http://wienotfilms.com. Wienot Films // Follow Your Passion. Tell Your Story. Live Your Dreams. 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.

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.

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.

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.'

We ended 2018 with a cautious outlook on the bond market. Our biggest concern was that the Federal Reserve’s series of interest rate hikes would reduce demand for bonds, especially bonds in the riskier segments of the market like high-yield bonds; but recently the Federal Reserve has indicated that they’re unlikely to raise interest rates again in the near-term.

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.

Discounts in muni-bond closed-end funds have narrowed recently, but they remain a good buy, says Jim Colby, Senior Municipal Strategist at Van Eck Global. Colby says high-yield munis are especially attractive because spreads remain wide. He says he is seeing high-yield corporate bond investors cross over into the high-yield muni space. Finally, he says investors are best off diversifying their municipal bond portfolios instead of buying individual Puerto Rico bonds for their high yields.

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do High-yield or junk bonds are those offered by issuers with credit ratings below investment grade. These bonds pay out higher returns or yields which is where they get their name. However, they also face a higher chance of default which is why they were originally referred to as junk bonds. The specific credit rating of issuers whose bonds are considered junk, is rated 'BB' or below with Standard&Poor's, and 'Ba' or below with Moody’s. High-yield ETFs are ETFs composed completely of non-investment grade securities like these. ETFs have also developed as a way for investors to minimize the risk such high-yield offerings inherently carry through diversification. This helps them avoid an all-or-nothing scenario that comes with investing all your capital in a single junk bond or merely a small basket of securities. According to C. Murphy (2016), the falling oil prices seen in 2015 caused non-investment grade bond ETFs to hit a multiyear low in response to fears that such price drops would lead to an increase in defaults. These trends have recently appeared to reverse course enough to legitimately allow investors to turn to high-yield bond ETFs as a viable investment tool once again. In the following, we provide a brief overview of some of the most important junk bond ETFs in the current market environment. The following four high yield bond ETFs (HYG, JNK, BKLN and SJNK) are the largest in the U.S. with regard to the total assets. HYG - The iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond The first major player to make a move in the high-yield bond market was HYG. According to ETF.com (2016), HYG, and JNK – a serious rival, has been among the largest and most liquid high-yield ETFs for years. It has a solid tracking on its core iBoxx index exposure, as it covers the junk bond market's most liquid parts of the U.S. high yield universe. The HYG ETF replicates the overall high-yield market’s performance. Compared to the competition of peer ETFs, HYG’s fees are slightly higher. It’s difficult to make any sort of direct cost analysis between HYG and its competition as HYGs index includes transaction costs while the industry standards others adhere to do not. No doubt, HYG holds an anchor position within the ETF junk bond market. As of the end of February 2016, the HYG US ETF has total assets of around 15,500 USD (mil). The inception date of this ETF was the 11th of April 2007, and its expense ratio is 0.50. (Bloomberg databases). A fund’s expense ratio is determined by dividing its annual operating expenses by the average value of the assets it manages. Any operating expenses incurred are deducted from the fund’s assets and thus from the return investors can expect. JNK - SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond According to ETF.com (2016), JNK is another widely popular, very liquid, high-yield bond fund. Its portfolio is and has been among the largest in the segment for years. JNK’s duration, yield, and credit risk al

Fixed-income investors are scrambling to adapt to a changing interest rate environment, but one may still generate yields and diminish rate risk through target-date bond ETFs. For instance, Guggenheim Investments has a suite of “BulletShares” defined-maturity bond ETFs, including a range of corporate bond options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2027 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSCR) and a group of high-yield options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2025 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSJP). "The objective of the BulletShares ETFs is to deliver the effective maturity of bonds that are maturing in the year. So once you get to the end of the year, we send them the asset value back to share holders," William Belden, Managing Director and Head of ETF Business Development for Guggenheim Investments, said at the Inside ETFs 2018 conference.

With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates over the past couple of years, short-term investments like treasury bills and CDs with maturities of under a year or so have become very popular with investors, and rightly so. Investors have gravitated to the part of the market where they can get more yield with less interest rate risk over time. But one of the concerns that we have is that investors may be getting too short-term in their bond portfolios. Kathy Jones explains why in this week’s episode of Bond Market Today.

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.

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.

Taxes, quality, risk: There are many factors to weigh when building your portfolio. Vanguard fixed income experts Daniel Wallick and Chris Alwine describe the important role municipal bonds can play in a diverse investment strategy. All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Credit-quality ratings are obtained from Standard & Poor's and are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). *For more information about Vanguard funds, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a 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.* Although the income from a municipal bond fund is exempt from federal tax, you may owe taxes on any capital gains realized through the fund's trading or through your own redemption of shares. For some investors, a portion of the fund's income may be subject to state and local taxes, as well as to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax. This webcast is for educational purposes only.
