    Default Bonds

    Any reason to think iShares Barclays Aggregate Bond ETF ( AGG) shouldn't continue to provide a 6% return?

    The theory would be, if the the economy improves, interest rates would move higher, which would be bad for bonds. But the question is whether the economy improves and interest rates go higher.

    The Fed said rates aren't going anywhere anytime soon, so perhaps bonds can keep chugging along. They made about 6% during the 0% interest rate years after the financial crisis, but yields weren't this low.

    First significant move in the 10 Year since June when yields have been largely trickling lower. Partially explains the drop in gold as the carry trade forced selling of the physical metal.

    Breakdown of TLT = higher yields. Note that gold is also dropping, not rising. Markets are baking in a strong 2021.

    Yields making a move lower. TLT big break higher of 50 DMA weighing on financials right now.

    This doesn't look like a one day move.

    Can't figure that one out. Strong economic data sends yields lower... much lower? I don't get it. Anyone?
