What the Bond Market’s Turn Means for Stocks and Volatility

by | Jun 7, 2022 | Market Updates

U.S. stock futures traded lower this morning following Target’s profit warning that sent its shares down more than 8% in premarket trading — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

If you’ve paid attention to anything I’ve said the past two months, then you already know the iShares 20-Plus Year Treasury Bond ETF (Nasdaq: TLT) has been trading sideways for two months now. This meant there was less pressure on the market because higher bonds means lower interest rates. 

But over the past five days, the bond market has started to move lower…

That tells me there’s now more pressure on the broader market because when bonds go down, rates go up. However, even though rate sentiment is changing, the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (NYSEArca: DIA), which tracks the 30 large-cap Dow stocks, has held its own. 

If the DIA continues to stay the range it’s in right now or consolidates, I won’t be too upset. But if it starts to break lower, there’s a good chance we could be down for the count, which will be a big deal. 

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll explain why the bond market is putting stress on stocks… the next major catalyst for stocks… one indicator we need to keep an eye on right now… key levels for the major indexes… the biggest Federal Reserve report this week… whether stocks will sink or soar in the near term… and one sector I like right now.

P.S. Have you checked your retirement account lately? 

A friend of mine recently showed me hers and it was down nearly 30% and, unfortunately, she isn’t the only one I’ve heard this from lately… 

Most traders have lost money this year.  

Now, I’m not saying this to scare you…

It’s a warning, and I’d also like to invite you to take action at 9 a.m. Eastern on Saturday, June 11, when I’m holding a private training class to show everyone the critical move they can make to help protect themselves from further downside… 

RSVP Here! 

P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
