Investors are selling US bonds through ETF-funds at the fastest pace in 14 months against the backdrop of the Fed's intention to raise approximately in December - on materials AMarkets.
Investors withdrew $ 4.1 billion in November - is the maximum outflow from September 2014 - data Bloomberg. Fund iShares (specialization in the 1-3-year-olds trezheris) had the largest outflow of $ 1.5 billion. As can be seen, the greatest shot went just on short-term bonds, as they are the most sensitive and quickly reflect what the FED is doing, and are also the target level for short-term loans (overnight) between banks. For last month trezheris fell 1.1% - the maximum loss among 26 bond markets (Bloomberg). The probability that the FED will raise rates at the meeting on December 15-16, now stands at 72% - the consensus forecast from Bloomberg. It is expected that after the initial raise the federal rate will be about 0.375% against the current level of 0-0.25%.
