Bonds, like stocks, are having a terrible year.
As the Federal Reserve zealously tightens monetary policy to curb the highest inflation seen in four decades, bond prices have fallen and yields have soared. Yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note recently surpassed 4%, their highest level since 2007.
Corporate credit has also underperformed. The Bloomberg US Credit Index is down almost 17% in 2022.
