Outside of equities, we saw a massive move higher in Treasury yields this week and a massive drop in Treasury bond prices.  For the 20+ year Treasury ETF (TLT), this week’s 6.34% drop was its second worst week on record since it began trading back in 2002.

Below is a look at TLT’s historical weekly percentage change, and we also show how TLT has performed in the weeks and months following one-week drops of more than 5% like we saw this week.  As shown in the table, TLT has normally continued lower for a while following big down weeks.  Start a two-week free trial to one of our three membership levels to receive Bespoke’s most actionable ideas.
