Bear Bond

Bear Bond

A bond that is likely to increase in price when stocks or the economy at large is performing poorly (that is, when interest rates are rising). Interest-only bonds and mortgage-backed securities that pay only interest are common examples of bear bonds because, in a bear market, people tend to pay only interest on large debts.
