FM IN-DEPTH: Correction Playbook – Bonds

By Thursday’s close, all the bulls could do was curl up and lick their wounds after a free fall in stock prices sent investors running for the exits.

In fact, by the end of trade, Wall Street had put in its worst day in over a year with the S&P more than 10% lower from the May 2nd high of 1370 – that officially puts the US stock market in correction territory.

Whenever markets make sharp moves such as this, Fast Money always tries to bring you insights from a wide range of pros that may help you navigate the chaos and confusion.

If you’re looking for safety and plan to get into the bond market Joe Terranova suggests hiding out in the LQD – an ETF made up of a basket of corporate bonds.

Trader Brian Kelly suggests looking at a long position in 2-year US Treasury, which could potentially catch a bid after Bank of New York Mellon announced plans to charge customers who hold large amounts of cash in its bank. "Why wouldn’t they just put their money in the 2-year Treasury?” he says.
