Inflation is the bond investor's biggest enemy
Inflation is the bond investor's biggest enemy So inflation by far is a bond investor's biggest enemy. Conversely, inflation is a bond issuer's best friend. Unfortunately, bond investors run into problems when the largest debt issuer and the one who prints money are the same entity. The German hyper-inflation Most people are familiar with Germany's hyperinflation which occurred after World War I. This inflation was instigated by the German government which had war debts to repay. In the hyperinflation of 1923, prices rose by about 10 billion times. The benefits gained by debtors are easy to see in Germany's hyperinflation. If you're the German government and are heavily indebted, the interest payments alone will swallow all your tax revenues. Inflation, however, provides an easy way out for you. If this year one mark buys a loaf of bread, but next year it takes ten billion marks to buy that same loaf of bread, a multi-trillion mark debt soon becomes more "manageable" -- even insignificant. The German hyperinflation was only eliminated when Germany issued a new currency that was backed by gold and with the creation of a new, independent central bank that wasn't a puppet of the government. The problems with inflation There are of course, two big problems with governments that think that inflation will bail them out of their problems. First, lenders simply stop loaning money on a long-term basis. No lending means no investment and poor prospects for the economy. The other problem with inflation is it hurts the weakest people in society. Suppose you're a retired German worker in the early 1920s. You've saved maybe a hundred thousand marks, and between interest and tapping your principal you're able to survive. Unfortunately, inflation hits and your entire retirement stash of a hundred thousand marks, which took you a lifetime to accumulate, now won't even buy you a cup of coffee! Things aren't as bad for workers, because their wages are being inflated, but if you can't work, you become completely dependent on the crumbs the government or other organizations might throw your way. As you can see, inflation has severe consequences for bond investors and retirees. The US and the gold standard For a long time the ability of the US federal government to generate paper dollars was limited because these dollars had to be backed by gold reserves. While the US was on the classical gold standard from 1880 to 1914 inflation in the US averaged 0.1 percent annually. But the US began to back away from the gold standard in the 1960s as President Johnson decided to undertake the expensive Vietnam War and the War on Poverty. The United States began to print more dollars than it had gold reserves to back up. Throughout the late 1960s everyone knew that inflationary pressures were building in the United States. The government maintained that the dollar was as good as gold, while at the same time was flooding the world market with dollars that really weren't backed by gold. The whole thing fell apart in 1968 when the US government refused to ship gold to so-called speculators at the official rate of $35 to the ounce. Meanwhile, real gold was trading in real markets for $43 an ounce. President Nixon officially rebuked any pretext of a gold standard in 1971 when he said that the dollar would no longer be convertible into gold at any price. The effects were immediate and obvious. On world-wide currency markets the dollar quickly lost 20 percent of its value, and Nixon had to impose wage and price controls in a vain attempt to stop inflation. Sell bonds during a war The inflation that accompanied the Vietnam War is proof that bonds are poor investments during a war. For some reason, when war breaks out people panic and trade their stocks for bonds. Apparently they think that bonds are safer than stocks. Stocks are generally less volatile than bonds, but buying bonds during a war almost always is a losing bet. Wars bring inflation, and stocks are the financial assets which are more likely to weather the ensuing inflation. And if you're in an area where the war is hot, think about buying hard assets like jewels which can be smuggled easily out of the country. The inflationary effects of war can be seen in America. America suffered serious bouts of inflation in 1920, the mid-1940s and the 1970s. These inflationary times occurred after major wars. In fact, the US recorded its highest level of inflation in 1946 when inflation reached 18 percent. Only strict rationing and price controls prevented inflation from reaching higher levels during World War II. In fact, the rent controls which eventually destroyed large sections of cities like New York got their start as World War II price controls. If you want to buy war bonds, fine, but you'd better write off a good chunk of your investment as a patriotic sacrifice because the war's inflation will eat away at the value of the bond.

What is INFLATION INDEXED BOND? What does INFLATION INDEXED BOND mean? INFLATION INDEXED BOND meaning - INFLATION INDEXED BOND definition - INFLATION INDEXED BOND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Daily inflation-indexed bonds (also known as inflation-linked bonds or colloquially as linkers) are bonds where the principal is indexed to inflation or deflation on a daily basis in terms of the official Daily CPI or monetized daily indexed unit of account like the Unidad de Fomento in Chile and the Real Value unit of Colombia. They are thus designed to hedge the inflation risk of a bond. The first known inflation-indexed bond was issued by the Massachusetts Bay Company in 1780. The market has grown dramatically since the British government began issuing inflation-linked Gilts in 1981. As of 2008, government-issued inflation-linked bonds comprise over $1.5 trillion of the international debt market. The inflation-linked market primarily consists of sovereign bonds, with privately issued inflation-linked bonds constituting a small portion of the market. Daily inflation-indexed bonds pay a periodic coupon that is equal to the product of the daily inflation index and the nominal coupon rate. The relationship between coupon payments, breakeven daily inflation and real interest rates is given by the Fisher equation. A rise in coupon payments is a result of an increase in inflation expectations, real rates, or both. For some bonds, such as the Series I Savings Bonds (U.S.), the interest rate is adjusted according to daily inflation. For other bonds, such as in the case of TIPS, the underlying principal of the bond changes, which results in a higher interest payment when multiplied by the same rate. For example, if the annual coupon of the bond were 5% and the underlying principal of the bond were 100 units, the annual payment would be 5 units. If the inflation index increased by 10%, the principal of the bond would increase to 110 units. The coupon rate would remain at 5%, resulting in an interest payment of 110 x 5% = 5.5 units. The real yield of any bond is the annualized growth rate, less the rate of inflation over the same period. This calculation is often difficult in principle in the case of a nominal bond, because the yields of such a bond are specified for future periods in nominal terms, while the inflation over the period is an unknown rate at the time of the calculation. However, in the case of inflation-indexed bonds such as TIPS, the bond yield is specified as a rate in excess of inflation, so the real yield can be easily calculated using a standard bond calculation formula. The most liquid instruments are Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), a type of US Treasury security, with about $500 billion in issuance. The other important inflation-linked markets are the UK Index-linked Gilts with over $300 billion outstanding and the French OATi/OAT€i market with about $200 billion outstanding. Germany, Canada, Greece, Australia, Italy, Japan, Sweden and Iceland also issue inflation-indexed bonds, as well as a number of Emerging Markets, most prominently Brazil.

FRM: Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS)
In a TIPS, the coupon (real yield) is fixed. The inflation-adjusted principal varies. But it redeems at the greater of [inflation-adjusted principal, initial par value]. Also, TIPS are linked to CPI, which is a government statistic and not necessarily your experience of inflation/deflation.

7 Painful Ways to Lose Money Investing in Bonds
Did you know that there are 7 different ways to lose money investing in bonds? That’s right, investing in bonds isn’t always a safe and low-risk investment. However, once you know and understand the risk associated with bond trading, then the chances of you losing money go down drastically. To download your FREE Report called, “The 7 Ways To Lose Money With Bonds”, check out: http://www.retirementthinktank.com/bondreport Now bonds have traditionally been viewed as a very safe way to create a steady stream of cash flow, and many brokers and financial advisors recommend bonds as part of a solid balance to any financial portfolio. And all of that is true…most of the time. The big issue with bond risk (and how people lose money with bonds) is when any of these 7 risk factors arise. And even worse, when any of the 7 risks combine at the same time, it can prove catastrophic. I will give you a basic review of the 7 different ways to lose money in bonds here: 1. Lack of Liquidity in bonds – Although the bond market is larger than the stock market in total value, there are far fewer bond traders and bond investors comparatively speaking. So when issues arise with a certain bond (like a city or municipality defaulting on their bonds, bankruptcy, etc), it can leave the average investor high and dry with no one to sell their bond to. 2. Interest Rate Fluctuations – Bond prices are inversely related to interest rates, so when interest rates rise, bond prices (the price that you buy and sell bonds) goes down. And with interest rates close to all-time lows today, this is a bubble just waiting to pop once interest rates start rising. And if they rise quickly, watch out bond prices! 3. Bond Creditworthiness – This is an important issue as the creditworthiness of the bond issuer determines the yield, and thus your risk/return. For instance, you might not get a great return on a United States Treasury bond, but you can sleep at night knowing there is little chance it will default. On the other hand, you can get hundreds of times more yield on a low-grade junk bond, but the chances of you losing money (or even all of your investment) go up significantly compared to a US Treasury bill. 4. Inflation / Hyperinflation – Generally speaking, inflation usually means higher interest rates. And since we know that interest rates are inversely related to bond prices, high inflation can destroy the value of your bond. Not to mention, in times of inflation the cost of everything (consumer goods) is going up, while your bond investment doesn’t. So higher inflation could render your bond interest negative after you factor inflation into the equation. 5. Reinvestment Risk – This risk pertains to the opposite issue of the others in that it occurs in times of a slowing economy, or a declining interest rate environment. When interest rates go down, bond investors are forced to reinvest their bond interest (and any return of principal) into new securities that will have lower rates of return. Of course this will reduce the overall income that is being generated by your bond portfolio. 6. Bond Fund “Backfire” – Bond funds have traditionally been considered very safe as they spread the bond risks out amongst many different bonds (versus an individual bond). And this is usually the case. However, bond funds can “backfire” when a bond manager starts replacing bonds as they mature in a rising interest rate environment. And if the bond portfolio loses enough value that investors start leaving the fund in droves, then the bond manager might have to start unloading high yielding bonds to meet the early redemption's. This doesn’t happen that often, but when it does, it is painful to all involved. 7. Making Bad Bond Assumptions – Finally, don’t ever make the assumption that your bond or bond fund is free of risk and can just cruise on auto-pilot without you ever having to review or check up on. This is where many bond investors get into trouble by thinking they can buy it and forget about it. Stay educated on what is going on with your bond, watch interest rates, and don’t chase bond yields! Finally, always get the advice of a licensed bond specialist to make sure that you never get burned by any of these bond risks.

Stock and Bond Market Correlation: How to Handle Inflation in Investment Analysis (1997)
Much effort has gone into the study of financial markets and how prices vary with time. Charles Dow, one of the founders of Dow Jones & Company and The Wall Street Journal, enunciated a set of ideas on the subject which are now called Dow Theory. Modigiliani's books: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=a3df9c167e859249c471fa08d652e1d7&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=franco%20modigliani This is the basis of the so-called technical analysis method of attempting to predict future changes. One of the tenets of "technical analysis" is that market trends give an indication of the future, at least in the short term. The claims of the technical analysts are disputed by many academics, who claim that the evidence points rather to the random walk hypothesis, which states that the next change is not correlated to the last change. The role of human psychology in price variations also plays a significant factor. Large amounts of volatility often indicate the presence of strong emotional factors playing into the price. Fear can cause excessive drops in price and greed can create bubbles. In recent years the rise of algorithmic and high-frequency program trading has seen the adoption of momentum, ultra-short term moving average and other similar strategies which are based on technical as opposed to fundamental or theoretical concepts of market Behaviour. The scale of changes in price over some unit of time is called the volatility. It was discovered by Benoît Mandelbrot that changes in prices do not follow a Gaussian distribution, but are rather modeled better by Lévy stable distributions. The scale of change, or volatility, depends on the length of the time unit to a power a bit more than 1/2. Large changes up or down are more likely than what one would calculate using a Gaussian distribution with an estimated standard deviation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_market The bond market (also debt market or credit market) is a financial market where participants can issue new debt, known as the primary market, or buy and sell debt securities, known as the secondary market. This is usually in the form of bonds, but it may include notes, bills, and so on. The primary goal of the bond market is to provide a mechanism for long term funding of public and private expenditures. Traditionally, the bond market was largely dominated by the United States, but today the US is about 44% of the market.[1] As of 2009, the size of the worldwide bond market (total debt outstanding) is an estimated $82.2 trillion,[2] of which the size of the outstanding U.S. bond market debt was $31.2 trillion according to Bank for International Settlements (BIS), or alternatively $35.2 trillion as of Q2 2011 according to Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA).[2] Nearly all of the $822 billion average daily trading volume in the U.S. bond market[3] takes place between broker-dealers and large institutions in a decentralized, over-the-counter (OTC) market. However, a small number of bonds, primarily corporate, are listed on exchanges. References to the "bond market" usually refer to the government bond market, because of its size, liquidity, relative lack of credit risk and, therefore, sensitivity to interest rates. Because of the inverse relationship between bond valuation and interest rates, the bond market is often used to indicate changes in interest rates or the shape of the yield curve. The yield curve is the measure of "cost of funding". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bond_market

Inflation-indexed bonds
Inflation-indexed bonds Although bond investing has changed from a world characterized by stability to one where price swings of 1 percent a day are common, there may be a chance for some stability to return to bond investors. The US Treasury recently announced that it will issue inflation-indexed bonds. These types of bonds already have been issued in countries like Canada and England, but only recently in the United States. At least initially, these bonds will be marketed mainly to individuals. It also is estimated that the total amount of inflation-indexed bonds issued by the US government will be less than 10 percent of the government's outstanding debt, so most bond investors will still face the threat of inflation. Investors in inflation-indexed bonds will have to pay taxes on the increase in value of the bond due to inflation. Because of this, unless the bonds are placed in tax-deferred retirement accounts, an inflation-indexed bondholder may have to dip into his principal to pay the taxes due. In spite of this, inflation-indexed bonds might be a good addition to traditional US Treasury bonds. Traditional bonds provide protection against deflation, while inflation-indexed bonds provide protection against inflation. Having both bonds in your fixed income portfolio should give you good diversification. Copyright 1997 by David Luhman

Mike Maloney-Fed Endgame Is Inflation

Maloney contends, “The bond market is in a 35 year bull market, and I don’t know how this can continue on forever. . . . I am expecting when this next recession starts, it’s going to be a deflationary event. In deflation and a crisis, you are going to see investors run towards safety . . . and bonds get one last pop. They are going to run to U.S. Treasuries and gold and silver. Those are the safe havens. Then people are going to realize, in this rarified territory, that bonds are not a good deal. You are going to see one last pop in the bond market before all hell breaks loose.” Maloney warns that we may see deflation, but the end game for the Fed is inflation, and that is theft. Maloney says, “When they inflate the currency supply . . . this is the most immoral act because they are stealing portions of our lifetimes. Slavery is no longer legal. That was when they were stealing present life moments. Now, they steal past life moments. The whips and the chains still exist, you just can’t see them.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Mike Maloney, founder of GoldSilver.com.

Bond Pricing on the Term Structure of Interest Rates with Expected Inflation Rate Changes
Consider the following spot interest rates for maturities of one, two, three, and four years. Year | Rate 1 | 4% 2 | 5% 3 | 6% 4 | 7% What is the price of a four year, 4 percent coupon bond with a face value of $100? Assume the bond pays an annual coupon. What are our expectations of the yield for a one year bond that starts in one, two, and three years, i.e., what are the forward rates? Suppose the inflation expectations are a constant 2 percent, what are the expected real interest rates for each one year period in the future? Suppose that immediately after purchasing the bond that market expectations of the inflation rate decrease to a constant one percent. What are our new nominal forward rates? Assume expectations of real interest rates have not changed. In one year, what do we expect the new term structure of interest rates to be? In one year, what do we expect the price of the bond to be based on the new term structure of interest rates? What do we expect the holding period return to be if you sell it immediately after receiving the first year’s coupon? Note: There is a typo in calculating the holding period return. The correct formula is (92.22 - 90.17 + 4)/90.17 = 6.7% Note: A pdf of the solution is available from here: https://goo.gl/MeMDkv

Bond Issuance Does Not Reduce Inflation
Professor Bill Mitchell, debunking a commonly held misunderstanding of government "borrowing." Most people believe that a government has 3 choices to "raise funds": it can tax, borrow, or "print money." Further, they believe that "printing money" is more inflationary than borrowing. This could not be more wrong. In fact, a government deficit (spending more than taxing) will be exactly as inflationary regardless of whether it's matched by bond sales (aka. "borrowing") or not (aka. "printing money"). First, the conventional narrative gets the order that things happen in wrong. When the government "borrows," it sells Treasury Bonds. But the private sector can only purchase Treasury Bonds using the government's own currency (paper notes or bank reserves). Where did the private sector get the currency that it uses to purchase the bonds? It can only come from previous government spending: the currency is created by the government only, and the way they get it out there is by spending it (or lending it). So any funds that the government "borrows" are necessarily funds that it has previously spent (or lent). So it is incorrect to say that government is borrowing and then spending. Logically, this is wrong. First it is creating funds by spending, and then borrowing back funds it has previously spent, effectively destroying them. That is the way the cycle works, every time. The case that people call "borrowing" is in fact the government spending and then selling bonds, and the case that people call "printing money" is in fact the government spending and then not selling bonds. Nothing more. Next, a lot of people think that choosing "borrowing" over "printing money" is more inflationary because it increases the money supply. This is false. It might (only might) be true that "the money supply" increases, but in fact they are equally inflationary. Remember, the government is only borrowing back funds it has previously spent. After the government spent them initially, they circulated and eventually wound up in somebody's savings, when that person decided not to spend them. Then that person can use their savings to buy a Treasury bond. Thus we see that a Treasury bond is nothing more than an alternate way to hold savings: an interest-bearing asset, rather than a non-interest bearing asset. And when the government "borrows" all it is doing is changing the form of the private sector's savings, from currency to bonds. Note that the key word here is "savings." The fact that somebody purchased a Treasury bond indicates that they weren't spending their money. If Timmy needed his $100 for groceries, then he wouldn't have been participating in a Treasury Security auction! The total amount of spending in the economy would be the same regardless of whether the government changed the form of Timmy's savings from currency to bonds, because Timmy wasn't spending in either case. And if there's no change in the amount of spending on goods and services, then how can prices change? They can't. The two scenarios ("borrowing" vs "printing money") have exactly the same impact on on prices, output, and employment. Now, clever readers might say, "aha, but wait! Timmy might not need his $100 at the moment he buys the bond, but what if he needs it later? What if he buys a 30-year bond, but next week he realizes he needs to spend the $100? In the scenario where the government sells him a bond ('borrowing') he can't spend the $100, whereas in the scenario where the government doesn't sell him a bond ('printing money') he still has the $100, and can spend it next week. So 'printing money' is still more inflationary." This is clever, but incorrect. The reason is because there is an extremely robust secondary market for Treasury bonds. In fact, in the US in particular, the Treasury bond market is the deepest and most liquid market on Earth. This means there is *always* somebody standing ready to buy your Treasury bond from you, in exchange for currency/deposits (often a dealer bank), to give you the funds you need if you decide to spend, nearly instantaneously. This means there is no such thing as being in a situation where you are prevented from spending because you're holding a Treasury bond instead of cash. And that means that the same amount of total spending would occur regardless of whether the government sold Treasury bonds or not. And that means that "borrowing" is exactly as inflationary as "printing money."

Here’s a simple investing relationship to help you risk manage your bond exposure: Accurately forecast the rate-of-change in U.S. inflation, and you’ll be able to more easily predict the future direction of bond yields. It’s a simple relationship to understand, but harder to forecast, according to Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough. “The number one predictor of getting the bond market right is getting inflation right on a longer-term inflation expectations basis,” McCullough explains in the clip above. “If you have the proper forecast, you would make a lot of money and certainly save a lot of money in getting away from certain things like being short bonds. Watch the full clip above to watch McCullough explain how to risk manage this correlation – and “take advantage of the herd.”

How Bond Market works? | Understanding Debt Market with example | Bond Market in India - Part 1
The bond market moves when expectations change about economic growth and inflation. Unlike stocks, whose future earnings are anyone's guess, bonds make fixed payments for a certain period of time. Investors decide how much to pay for a given bond based on how much they expect inflation to erode the value of those fixed payments. The higher their expectations of inflation, the less they will pay for bonds. The lower they expect inflation to be, the more they will pay. In Bond market, lower prices correspond to higher yields, and higher prices correspond to lower yields. When prices fall, yields rise, and vice versa.
