Why are 34 of 37 Vanguard Bond funds showing no price change today

Post by Paul Romano » Mon Aug 12, 2019 6:29 pm

Looking at Vanguard bond funds this evening

Yields were down today by large amounts

The 10 year was down by 10 bps

However 34 of 37 Vanguard bond funds are showing no change in price tonight

How is this possible. When yields are down prices should be up.

I would have expected most Vanguard bond funds to be showing price increases tonight

Is something wrong here?

There's another thread about huge drops on other funds. Chances are there's an IT issue at Vanguard and nothing wrong with the funds themselves.

Give it a day. This is a non-event.

I'm seeing some changes now. Probably related to the glitch currently being discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=288008
