  10. Long-Duration Treasury Bonds Enter Bull Market: What Lies Ahead In 2024?
    Benzinga | 12/20/23 12:11 PM EST

    Long-duration Treasury bonds, a cornerstone of many investment portfolios, have recently recovered from a bear market that commenced in August 2020. The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF, the leading ETF linked to Treasury bonds and a widely-tracked barometer of long-term Treasury performance, has officially entered a bull market, following a remarkable 20% rally from its October lows.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
