iM Update* – February 13, 2015

Bond-market:

Fig-4.-2-13-2015

The BVR-model avoids high beta bonds (long-bonds) and also intermediate duration bonds.

The Bond Value Ratio is shown in Fig 4.  The BVR is down from last week’s level. According to the model, only when BVR turns upward after having been lower than the lower offset-line should one consider long bonds again. One can see from the upward sloping graph that long bonds have gained from January 2014 onward. It would appear that BVR has peaked.

 

The Yield Curve:

Fig-5.-2-13-2015 The yield curve model shows the declining trend from Jan-2014 of the 10-year and 2-year Treasuries yield spread. Figure 5 charts (i10 – i2).  FLAT and STPP are ETNs.  STPP profits from a steepening yield curve and FLAT increases in value when the yield curve flattens.  This model confirms the direction of the BVR.
