We have seen massive equity-like volatility to the global bond markets in 2020 and pandemic induced drawdowns of over 25% in some of the highest quality corners of the U.S. bond market. In many cases, downside volatility has exceeded the levels produced during the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. Historic Fed intervention continues to move us forward but investors are left with three big questions:

  • Are there any bargains remaining in the current investment landscape after the recent surge in prices?
  • Do we need to distinguish between the issuers who may never be able to stand without “life support” and the issuers who have a more confident future and need short-term liquidity help?
  • Why does Fed intervention currently mean different things for the bond and equity markets?

In this recorded webinar hosted by Eric Olson, Fidelity regional brokerage consultant, we helped investors understand risks and opportunities in the days ahead.
