Join us to hear from Tom DeMarco, CFA, Fidelity Capital Markets, and his team of market strategists, Ilya Perlovsky and David Sackler, for a review of the main events and themes that characterized the bond markets during 2018.
After starting with a review of the latest interest rate actions and announcements from the Federal Reserve, we'll then debate where we are in terms of the economic and political cycles, and their influence on treasuries, the yield curve, and broader markets. The team will then take a closer look at themes at work in the corporate and municipal bond markets along with their thoughts on what 2019 might have in store for fixed income investors.

In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Lower-quality fixed income securities involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, and economic risks. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
