Recently, I've issued several warnings in these pages for investors who are heavily involved in fixed-income assets. As I've mentioned over the past couple of months, I think the worst investment for investors to make is to put a lot of money into long-term Treasury bonds and notes.
This is because the unprecedented level of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve will not go on forever. Once this shift occurs-the Federal Reserve beginning to reduce its aggressive quantitative easing program by decreasing monthly asset purchases-I believe it will hit the bond market quite hard.
I am not alone in this analysis, as recently the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President, Richard Fisher, stated that he too believes the multi-decade bull run in the bond market is over. (Source: Ito, A., et al., "Fed's Fisher Urges QE Reduction Seeing End to Bond Rally," Bloomberg, June 5, 2013.)
