3RD QUARTER FIXED INCOME

Fixed Income Market: Bond prices fluctuated during the quarter. Much of that investor behavior reflects the same concerns about the macro issues evident in the stock market.  But some of the recent sell-off may just be investor decisions to take profit. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond (which moves inversely to prices) had ended 2020 at .931% and reached a post pandemic high of 1.749% on March 31. It then bounced around during the third quarter reaching a low of 1.173% on August 2 before settling at 1.528% on September 30.

Other Assets: Our aversion to long-term bonds remains. We like maturities under two years, floating rate funds and cash and alternative investments such as real estate investment trusts.
