Abnormal Markets...

High yield bonds are outperforming investment grade corporate bonds, which are outperforming equities (year to date 2009).

How rare is this? Well, this hasn't happened over a full year since 1993 when all three were positive.

And the last time high yield had positive returns, while investment grade bonds and equities had negative returns... well I don't have enough data to tell if that's ever happened.
