Just two days ago I set up a credit put spread trade in the TLT ETF. I did this on the drop in the TLT on Tuesday. Yesterday the TLT ETF jumped higher only to move lower today.
Much of this movement is being caused by investor levels of concern on the overall economy and the markets themselves. Basically what is the risk of the Fed raising rates sooner than later.
PPI Numbers Spooked Bonds
Today’s drop was on the back of PPI numbers showing a jump in wholesale inflation in June. This was a major jump of half a percent which is big for one month at a time when PPI has been well under wraps for longer than two years. This has investors worried that the Fed will raise rates earlier than December, possibly in September.
