    CHINA PRESS: There will be a sudden fall in international liquidity in 2017 as the big four central banks exit quantitative easing, People's Bank of China researcher Yao Yudong says. The ECB is expected to buy as much as E2 trillion in debt and exit two years later while the BOJ has bought 40% of bonds in the market and it is difficult for it to buy more, Yao says. Both the ECB and BOJ will have to end quantitative easing in two years even if it isn't successful. (sina.com)

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.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
