In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk, inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so holding them until maturity to avoid losses caused by price volatility is not possible. While it may seem appealing to look at bonds that offer higher yields, investors should consider those higher yields to be a sign of potentially greater default, and credit and call risk.
Stock markets are volatile and can fluctuate significantly in response to company, industry, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Investing in stock involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
Foreign markets can be more volatile than U.S. markets because of increased risks of adverse issuer, political, market, or economic developments, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. These risks are particularly significant for funds that focus on a single country or region.
