Bond of the Week : 31 July 2014
This week we take a quick look at a bond fund from our friends over the pond.
The Investment Grade Corporate Bond (LQD) fund, with its 3.57% yield, is consolidating bullishly around 52-week highs. New longs could use a break of the rising 100-day exponential moving average as a stoploss. Momentum is not overbought.
We do this for two reasons. Firstly to highglight the potentally interesting trading opportunity. Secondly to highlight a few of our other services. We often include bond and fixed income related studies in our ETF Global Opportunities Review. Secondly we have a large ETF educational secton on the main Investors Intelligence website. If you are not familiar with the inner workings of ETFs our section that was produced with WWWeb Financial Group and Peel Hunt may be of help.
www.fixedincomeinvestor.co.uk is a division of Stockcube Research Ltd which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. The research provided by Stockcube on the Website (and any other Stockcube website) is provided solely to enable investors to make their own investment decisions and does not constitute personal investment recommendations. No recommendations are made directly or indirectly by Stockcube as to the merits or suitability of any investment decision or transaction which may result directly or indirectly from having viewed the investment research on the Website or having received it by email. Investors are therefore urged to seek independent financial advice if they are in any doubt. The value of investments and the income derived from them can go down as well as up, and the investor may not get back the full amount originally invested.
Bonds, as with all investments, are subject to price volatility and in the event of a default an investor may lose some or all of his or her original investment. This site also contains references to derivatives. These are particularly high risk, high reward investment instruments and an investor may lose more than his initial margin requirement. Some foreign currency instruments are also featured and if an investor decides to acquire any investment denominated in a currency different from the his or her own, the investor should note that changes in foreign exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the value, price and income of the investment in the base currency.
None of the services provided as a result of this agreement constitutes a personal recommendation to invest from Stockcube and no service should be construed as such. For the avoidance of doubt, where the word “recommendation” is used elsewhere in these terms it does not refer to a personal recommendation, unless this is explicitly stated. The investments described by or in the services are not suitable for all investors. Investors who have any doubt about whether particular investments are suitable for them should contact an independent financial adviser.
These services do not include personal investment recommendations from Stockcube and should not be construed as such. Stockcube may, at its discretion, provide information, advice, recommendations and research to subscribers from time to time on its own initiative or advise subscribers of other services available. Stockcube will be under no obligation to provide on-going advice in relation to financial instruments covered on this website.
