The capital markets remain fixed on the coronavirus outbreak as more news out of China is reporting more new cases and deaths related to the illness. This is causing a sustained move to safe haven government debt, causing Treasury yields to fall and prices to rise.

“A 15,000-person spike in coronavirus infections in Hubei province was more than sufficient to drive a modest global flight-to-quality, pushing 10-year yields back below 1.60%,” said Ian Lyngen, BMO’s head of U.S. rates.

In times of low yields and rising bond prices like today’s fixed income landscape, it can help to tilt your allocation towards fixed income exchange-traded funds like the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NasdaqGS: TLT). As for the fund itself, TLT seeks to track the investment results of the ICE U.S. Treasury 20+ Year Bond Index, which measures the performance of public obligations of the U.S. Treasury that have a remaining maturity greater than or equal to twenty years.

For the leverage-hungry traders, here are some Direxion Investments ETFs to look at that cover the short and long end of the yield curve:
