Perspective on the bonds market in 2022 and what we can expect going forward
PHOENIX - Jan. 30, 2023 - PRLog -- Bonds have been part of a well-balanced portfolio for a long time, but over the last 40 years, many bond investors find themselves "shell-shocked". In a new blog post from Trajan Wealth, we discuss what to expect from bond returns in your investment portfolio.
Bond performance in the last year has been unusually troublesome, with some saying that 2022 was the worst year in decades, or perhaps ever. But there are serious considerations that need to be made to give a proper perspective on this outlook, including interest rates being markedly higher, and the pace of rate increases from the Federal Reserve.
"Because bond yields began 2022 at the lowest levels we have seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s, a small increase in interest rates (bond yields) had a much larger impact on the price of the particular bond than it did when interest rates were higher."
Looking from a historical perspective, bond prices can fluctuate based on many factors, and these factors worked together in 2022 to make a very difficult year for bond yield. But looking ahead at the future could be providing some light at the end of the tunnel.
