ETFs tracking US long-term bonds with a maturity over 20 years have slid by 1,08% this Thursday, June 4th. Even if their year-to-date performance remains positive (+16,62%), this segment has shed 5,49% over the last 30 days. Long-dated Treasury bonds have lost the favor of investors as the economic outlook stabilizes itself, supported by the expectation that the Fed will continue to keep short-term yields low. As long-term bonds prices edged lower, the yield curve steepened. Flows recorded from the primary market also illustrate the current trend as investors withdrew almost $ 700M from this segment over the last month. The US 20Y+ bonds segment counts 12 ETFs for a total of 20,5 Bn of assets invested.
