  • Bond market meltdown deconstructed: Five charts that explain why

    More than $450 billion has been wiped out across global bond markets in the past few weeks and, for many people, there doesn't seem to be any particular reason why.

    Sovereign-bonds yields had fallen so far that in order for them to make sense, investors would have needed to see persistent deflation and European recessions.

    For a while, that seemed like a real possibility, as oil went from more than $100 a barrel to less than $50 and many forecasters were predicting $30. Well, that didn't happen, and oil started to rise at the same time as evidence of incipient inflation and economic growth in Europe.
