Increased Pressure in the Bond Market Looms

Since the U. S. presidential election, the S&P 500 is higher by 2 percent. And, understandably, there has been a lot of focus on the sector winners and losers and the impact of policy under a new administration. But the real story has taken place in the bond market. The yield on the ten-year Treasury note is higher by 50 basis points after climbing another 20 last week. At 2.35 percent, the yield is the highest since July, 2015. That move equates to a price decline in excess of 4 percent in just seven trading days.

Financial stocks have soared 8.4 percent, while the KBW banking index has climbed a stunning 10 percent in anticipation of a less onerous regulatory environment and higher interest rates. Industrial stocks have climbed 4.9 percent due to expectations of increased spending on infrastructure and defense, and healthcare has added 3.1 percent on the diminished likelihood of drug price controls.
