The recent move in Treasury yields has basically been a perfect storm for rates markets. While long-end Treasury yields have been gradually moving higher since August, the move over the last two weeks of February has been extraordinary.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall.
