The end of the bonds super cycle?
From record lows just after the Brexit vote, government bond yields have spiked higher. Ten-year bond yields have risen from 1.36% in the US to 2.2%, from -0.19% in Germany to 0.31% and from 1.81% in Australia to 2.64% in four months. This, in turn, has led to sharp falls in high yield share market sectors like real estate investment trusts and utilities that had benefited from the fall in bond yields as investors sought higher yields.
