- Junk bonds are torn between the slide in Treasury yields (good for prices) and a stumbling stock market (not good), and they've split the difference thus far this year - both HYG and JNK are about flat.
- "High yield has held up relatively well amid the recent emerging market-driven volatility," say Barclays credit strategists Brad Rogoff and Jeff Meli, with the rally in rates acting as a "stabilizer" amid the volatility of the selloff in risk assets. "Fund flows, which had been mixed in the past few weeks, have turned to moderate but manageable outflows."
- High-yield ETFs: HYG, JNK, HYLD, HYS, SJNK, PHB, BSJF, SJB, BSJE, HYHG, BSJG, BSJI, ANGL, HYLS, XOVR, UJB, BSJH, THHY, QLTC, SHYG, BSJK, HYZD, HYND, BSJJ
