Bond Prices in 2022: One Way Ticket?

Community bank bond portfolios prices have fallen by about 5% so far just in 2022. As the Fed has just started to tighten, and balance sheet paydown is about to commence, what does that mean for the rest of year?

We’ll look at some historical data, and the current levels of interest rates in the market, and will make some suggestions about products and strategies that may perform better-than-average in the near future.
