With rising rates forcing some issuers out of the market, Moody's expects the U.S. high-yield (HYG, JNK) default rate to rise to 3.2% by November from 2.9% now. It's hardly bad news as that's still well below the 4.5% average since 1993 and the peak rate of 14% in 2009, and Moody's expects the default rate to fall to 2.6% by mid-2014 as issuers return to the market once volatility subsides.
