  • Monthly Fixed Income Report – April 2016


    Guzman & Company’s Investment Banking team released its monthly Fixed Income Market Report for April 2016.

    Key Takeaway: The risk-on rally that began in March continued into April, with most asset classes moving further into positive territory for the year. A slower projected path of Fed rate increases and additional bond buying from European and Japanese central banks pushed bond yields to record lows early in the month. The $USD had its lowest close in almost a year on speculation the Fed wasn’t in a rush to raise rates. The weaker $USD in turn provided added lift to equities and proved to be a boon for commodities, with oil up over 20% in the month.

  • Monthly Fixed Income Report – March 2016


    Guzman & Company’s Investment Banking team released its monthly Fixed Income Market Report for March 2016.

    Key Takeaway: Risk-On became the order of the day in March as Central Bank actions sparked a global reflation trade that brought most asset classes back into positive territory for the year. The initial spark came early in the month from the ECB in the form of a stimulus package that far exceeded market expectations and included a surprise provision for the purchase of Euro-denominated corporate bonds. Following the announcement, stock indexes soared and credit risk fell around the world on hopes that these actions would eventually feed into the real economy.

  • Monthly Fixed Income Report – February 2016####


    Guzman & Company’s Investment Banking team released its monthly Fixed Income Market Report for February 2016.

    Key Takeaway: Credit markets got off to a slow start in February as equity market volatility once again dominated market sentiment. An overly focused preoccupation with the price of oil, along with concerns about a potential Chinese devaluation and possible British exit from the Eurozone all conspired to bring equity markets to new lows for the year. As investors shunned risk assets globally, Treasury yields fell dramatically to levels not seen since last spring. Ten year Treasuries approached 1.50% and long bonds touched 2.50%. Additionally, by mid-month credit spreads had widened to their worst levels in 4 years as signs of stress in global financial markets gathered momentum.
