iShares Trust Municipal Bond ETF – I-Week Chart.
In March, after a 15% decline in municipal bond prices and as part of its response to COVID-19, the Federal Reserve announced it would, for the first time in its history, enter the municipal bond market.
Following the announcement of the Feds purchasing plans, municipal bonds experienced a very strong rally, taking them back to the highs seen earlier this year.
This chart looks at National Muni Bond ETF (NYSE:) on a weekly basis.
The rally off the March lows came back to test the highs of earlier this year, where MUB may have created a double top at (1).
Weakness in MUB of late has it breaking below support at (2).
If MUB has double topped, it could well be suggesting that the long-term bull market in bonds could be coming to an end, despite the Fed pumping historical amounts into this market.
