    • BlackRock launches the iShares Currency Hedged Global ex-USD High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:HHYX), tracking an index of junk bonds issued in euros, pounds, and loonies, but hedging against currency risk.
    • The existing iShares Global ex-USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (BATS:HYXU) is lower by 7.7% YTD, in part thanks to a gain in the dollar of 6.5%.
    • The hedged version has expenses of 0.43% vs. $0.40 for the unhedged.
    • Global high-yield ETFs: DHF, HYF, HIO, GHY, HYB, HYI, VTA, FSD, KHI, IHY, PGHY, HYXU, IJNK

    • With equity guys greedy and fixed income fans fearful, maybe it's time to go the other way.
    • Portfolio manager David Tepper (not that David Tepper), finds 10 closed-end bond funds who have negative YTD and Y/Y returns even as their net asset values have risen over the same periods: TAI, HIX, HHY, HIO, FTF, HAV, HIH, PIM, PPT, FMY.
    • Several other closed-end funds run by high-profile names used to command hefty premiums, but now trade at discounts to net asset value. Among them are Jeff Gundlach's DBL and DSL and Pimco's PCI, PDI, PFN, and PFL.
