The strongest annual start for {scrap bonds} Alsabaah-10631

Capitals / agencies

High-yielding corporate bonds recorded the strongest start of a year in nearly a decade, following the sell-off of scrap bonds in three months from 2018.
Scrap bonds are synonyms for high-yielding bonds that are named because they contain certain risks. When buying a high yield bond, it is often classified as a credit 

Federal approach
Investors in non-investment grade corporate bonds, known as "junk bonds," have begun to believe that the new federal approach to slowing the pace of normalization of monetary policy could help prevent a US recession, according to a report released on Thursday.
The risk of a recession for the US economy suggests that high-debt companies are at greater risk of being unable to meet their obligations and default.
The Federal Reserve's approach now means that it is becoming more cautious about monetary policy moves with its intention to keep rates as they are this year.
The rise in the debt of non-investment-grade "junk" companies prompted returns on such bonds to fall as prices rose.

Credit differences
The gap between credit spreads, which indicate the 10-year yield on scrap and 10-year US Treasury bonds, has also narrowed to 3.64 percent from 5.44 percent on Jan. 3.
However, credit spreads are still about 40 basis points below their September low of last year.

Total returns
But this sharp tightening of credit spreads helped scrap bonds yield overall yields of 8.6 percent this year to April 12, the best start of a year since 2009, according to CreditSites, .
The gains in the unsecured debt market come after the negative performance of the higher-yielding debt market last year led to a 2.3 percent drop in yields amid concerns that debt companies would not be able to handle the four central bank increases in 2018.
Bond prices and returns on debt are moving in a two-way direction
