On Wall Street it's often said the bond market is where the smart money resides.

After decades of rising prices and declining yields, a secular reversal in bonds may now be in play.

Yields have been steadily rising since the pandemic lows in 2020 and now the Federal Reserve and other world central banks are embarking on interest rate hikes.
