The Current Price of Stocks and Commodities Moving in Tandem with Yields on Government Bonds, Fuels Volatility

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Stocks, bond yields and commodities have continued to move in unison lately, with the S&P 500, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield and U.S. crude oil moving in tandem in 9 of the previous 12 sessions.

As a result, many individuals and entities are heavily invested in all asset classes, setting the stage for a sudden unwinding of positions once correlations break down.

Notably, assets moving in unison are always at risk of falling to volatile levels and could result in repricing when correlations fall apart. Therefore, it is prudent that financial advisors reduce the size of their positions, or raise cash, in order to lessen client exposure to market swings.
