    • First there was the "new normal," suggesting a generation of subdued economic growth, then there was the "new neutral," describing an era of lower than normal policy rates.
    • To describe what he sees as a phase of diminishing central bank effectiveness, Pimco's Richard Clarida uses the term "insecure stability."
    • "We believe there are diminishing returns to monetary-policy activism," he says. "The game is only going on because of massive quantitative easing, negative zero interest rates and emerging economies ... Our view is that investors cannot get a false sense of security by extrapolating past trends. So you see a world that now appears to be stable, but is not very secure.”
    • “There is the distinct possibility,” says Pimco, “that monetary policy exhaustion and an overhang of debt in some major economies pose material threats to the sustainability of the global recovery and financial stability.”

    • "The system itself is at risk," says Bill Gross, leaning against four decades of instinct by aiming to go short credit. At some point, he believes, central bankers are going to run out of tools with which to prop up asset prices.
    • Not buying stocks and not buying high-yield "comes at a price," he warns. That price is low returns. “I know that my investors want three, four, or five percent, or else they can keep it in the bank or stuff it in their mattress."
    • His Janus Unconstrained Bond Fund (MUTF:JUCAX) is up 2.6% YTD, outperforming 70% of peers.
    • Gross expects the Fed to hike in June and continue with gradual rate increases.

    • Fixed-income ETF net inflows of $32.5B in Q1 were nearly triple the average of the prior 12 quarters according to Marketfield Asset Management. A notable beneficiary of the trend was the iShares Core. U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:AGG) with about 10% of that $32.5B. This BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) stalwart has pulled in a "remarkable" 14% of all fixed-income ETF flows over the last three years and now has AUM of $34.8B.
    • The Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (NYSEARCA:BND) is growing more slowly, but has the 2nd-fastest 3-year growth rate and AUM of $28.4B.
    • The cash, says Marketfield's Michael Shaoul, doesn't appear to be coming from other fixed-income ETFs, but instead continues a shift from actively-managed to passive funds. Shaoul also notes that flows weren't limited to those benchmark ETFs, but also included strong moves into Treasury, investment-grade, and high-yield ETFs.

    • Pimco expects global real GDP growth of 2-2.5% this year, down 25 basis points at both ends from its previous forecast. Actual GDP growth was 2.8% in 2014, and 2.6% last year, so the 2016 forecast sees the slowdown continuing.
    • With U.S. monetary policy to some extent being "made in China," the team sees just one or two rate hikes from the Fed this year.
    • The good news: The risk of recession remains low - at most 20%. The expansion is an old one, but expansions don't die of old age, reminds Pimco. It takes serious economic imbalances and significant central bank tightening.

    • So says Dan Fuss, vice chairman of Loomis Sayles. “A few are already known but there are some that were wiped out and just wound down.”
    • Those funds who pressed shorts into February got fried by the fast turnaround in the junk bond market (now nicely in the green for the year), says Fuss.
    • The pain suffered by hedge funds is a "side effect" of declining market liquidity, says Fuss. “Volatility will stay high any time you have a major change like this.”

    • Take advantage of the past few weeks' big rally to lighten up, suggests Morgan Stanley, cutting its year-end forecast for the S&P 50 to 2,050 from 2,175 (and against Friday's close of 2,022).
    • "The probability of a global recession has risen," says the team, now seeing U.S. GDP growth of just 1.7% this year, down from 1.9% previously. Outlooks for Europe and emerging economies were also cut.
    • They put the probability of global recession at 30% - the highest for this cycle.
    • Alongside this dour forecast, is, naturally, a positive one for bonds. They see the 10-year Treasury yield challenging its all-time ow of 1.38% by the end of Q3. It closed at nearly 2% on Friday.

    • The Vanguard Core Bond Fund will have investor class shares with a 0.25% fee, and admiral class shares (min. $50K investment) with a 0.15% fee.
    • Vanguard's Total Bond Market ETF (NYSEARCA:BND) has an expense ratio of 0.07%, and the iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:AGG) an expense ratio of 0.08%. These new actively-managed funds will naturally be attempting to beat those benchmarks.

    • In a sour mood to start the year, the events of January has Bill Gross (NYSE:JNS) taking a victory lap of sorts in his February market outlook.
    • "[Central banks] all seem to believe that there is an interest rate SO LOW that resultant financial market wealth will ultimately spill over into the real economy. I have long argued against that logic and won't reiterate the negative aspects of low yields and financial repression ... What I will commonsensically ask is 'How successful have they been so far?'"
    • "What I do know is that our finance-based global economy is transitioning due to the impotence of monetary policy which has always, and is now increasingly focused on the elixir of low/negative interest rates."
