    Fixed Income Charts And Views

    2019-07-25T10:29:00Z By Amundi Asset Management

    A slowdown in global growth, with subdued inflation and dovish central banks (CB) committed to avoiding further economic deceleration, is a trend that, in our view, should remain favourable for bond investors.

Sharpe show that such “long-term spreads” are statistically dominated in forecasting models by an economically intuitive alternative, a “near-term forward spread.”

    Fallen Angels in the US credit market

    2019-05-22T15:52:00Z By FTSE Russell

Thus, the downgrade from Investment Grade (IG) to High Yield (HY) is far more significant than a downgrade for a bond staying within the same asset class. Fallen Angels tend to have higher credit-beta than other HY issues as a result.
