  • What The Bond Market Slump Means For Currency ETFs [View article]
    It's somewhat counter-intuitive, but it holds. Bonds fall but the better yields attract more foreign money.

    That said, it's not always the case. If yields rise because the market is worried about repayment risk, currency risk or a loss of credibility from a central bank, that's a different story.

    If Japan dumps its Treasury holdings, that would be a very large negative for USD, even though yields would rise.
