High-Quality Fixed Income – Overweight duration

As expected, the Federal Reserve held rates steady at their meeting last week. Rates currently have a 100% likelihood of staying flat at the January 31st FOMC meeting and a nearly 100% chance of being down by the June 12th FOMC meeting according to the CME's FedWatch tool. This signals a high likelihood that short-term rates will be flat to down over the next six months. As such, longer-duration assets are becoming more attractive. The Fed announced they will likely cut rates three times this year at 1/4% each.
