As part of my daily routine, I publish all my reading (including snippets from other well-known commentators) in an Internet newspaper, “Investment Postcards Daily”. I publish the paper even when traveling for extended periods when blogging takes a backseat, like over the past two months. This is a sure way of staying in touch.

Asset class performance (April 2012): Another good month for bonds

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

The bar chart below, courtesy of Scott Barber of Reuters, shows the monthly performances of the principal asset classes.

“The “risk on/risk off” barometer moved back in the direction of “risk off” during April, as U.S. 10-year Treasury securities turned in the best investment gains (in U.S. dollar terms) during the month,” said Barber. “The 2.8% jump in the value of the Treasury securities came despite the almost universal perspective on the part of professional investors that the 30-year bull market for bonds is finally sputtering to a halt and that eventually interest rates will begin to climb. Investors displayed a clear bias in favor of assets that not only generated income but also offered them security – in other words, bonds of various kinds were the only major asset classes to end the month in the black.”
