The Case For Bonds | Alfonso Peccatiello

Alfonso ("Alf") Peccatiello, founder of The Macro Compass and host of The Macro Trading Floor, returns to Forward Guidance to argue why he is starting to like bonds at this point in the business cycle. Alf and Jack discuss inflation, the labor market, the Fed hiking cycle, "higher for longer," the housing market, the earnings cycle, and how all of these factors affect the future performance of longer-duration Treasury bonds.

Filmed on March 2, 2023.
