Duration Risk: The Relationship Between Bond Prices and Interest Rates

Posted by David Diggins on Sep 6, 2018 3:30:33 PM

Duration risk has been a popular theme around buy-side firms as they look to incorporate low duration bonds into model portfolios to reduce interest rate sensitivity and increase liquidity. Typical bond indexes have an average duration of 5-7 years; this will create large outflow of assets in the upcoming quarters and increase popularity among individual securities.

JUNK BONDS CAME UNDER MORE PRESSURE,  outpaced by investment-grade debt in net prices, for a second day.   Profit-taking,  political infighting  (in both Europe and the U.S.), and the occurrence of massive   pullbacks in shares of Hammerson PLC and Saga PLC, all factored into the mostly risk-averse European session.   More bumps along the road in Brexit  (British exit from EU) were also in the mix, as London traders faced the backdrop of an earlier sell-off in Asian markets, while the   oil-and-energy sector was roiled  by a pullback in global crude-oil prices.

FAVOR FOR INVESTMENT-GRADE BONDS carried over from yesterday's session, even as stocks in Europe's bourses stepped higher amid   strength in the oil-and-energy sector.   Royal Dutch Shell PLC shares, up 4.2% as of   3:40  London time, lifted a range of related European oil firms' stock and junk debt as well, including those of   Tullow Oil PLC,   Total SA, and   BP PLC. A degree of optimism in the banking sector stemmed from data showing   encouraging stress tests for U.K. banks, although gains in this sector remained spotty amid pullbacks in  Barclays PLC shares, off 0.7%, and   Credit Suisse Group, off 0.52%,  while   Societe Generale  added 0.75%. Meanwhile the mining and materials sectors remained under pressure as shares of  Rio Tinto PLC,   Glencore PLC, and   BHP Billiton PLC  shares all extended yesterday's pullbacks

EUROPEAN JUNK BONDS RETAINED SLIGHT FAVOR over their less-risky investment-grade counterparts, as stocks in Europe's bourses stepped modestly higher. A bit   less acute German political risk  was in the picture, relative to yesterday. The view grew that   a return to the   Grand Coalition  of parties urged by Angela Merkel may be best , despite resistance from the liberal   SPD ( Social Democratic Party of Germany). This, along with a   sharp fresh high in crude-oil prices, led investors in Europe to show a slight preference for risk assets, as   WTI (West Texas Intermediate) oil touched its highest close in over two years.   European oil firms rose accordingly  as gains in   Royal Dutch Shell PLC  shares added 1.0%,   Tullow Oil PLC  was up 4.3%, and   Total SA  was up 1.4%. In other sector cues for bond traders,   Akzo Nobel NV shares added 1.4%,  Thomas Cook PLC was off 7.7%, as of   4:40  London time.
