ETF Strategy - Monthly return result (MAR 2022)

TVC:US20   United States 20 Year Government Bonds
Monthly return (FEB 2022): -16.58%

SMTMI Strategy YOY : -4.72%

In March, based on our ETF strategy, we were positioned on ETF that follow US Long term Bonds.
This switch towards LT bonds is explained by the aim to protect our positions from the important drop of stock market that started end of 2021 and also
by the anticipation of the policy rate decided by the FED in early 2022 to counter inflation .
However, the international situation was then impacted by a new major event, the war in Ukraine.
This new situation brings great uncertainty for the future. The market reacts to this uncertainty by lowering yields on long term bonds
and therefore a decrease in the value of our long-term bond ETF .
