Jeff Gundlach's Appearance on Wall Street Week

The classic show Wall Street Week has recently been rebooted by Skybridge Capital's Anthony Scaramucci.  The first episode recently aired and featured DoubleLine Capital's Jeff Gundlach.

In it, Gundlach talks about his specialty: fixed income markets.  He pointed out that in 2018-2019, there will be tons of bond maturities.

He's also worried about junk bonds:  "One thing that I think is really important that nobody talks about or has been thinking about is the entire life of the junk bond market has been secularly declining interest rates."

On what will happen to the junk bond market when interest rates go up, Gundlach proclaimed: "I think that's the next bond market crisis."

On interest rates, Gundlach said, "I think the probability of a rate hike in June is very, very low." He also thinks it could be possible that the Fed doesn't raise rates at all in 2015.  He emphasized that the Fed is data dependent and so the data will need to give them a reason to act.

Embedded below is the video of Jeff Gundlach's appearance on Wall Street Week, which starts around the 3:30 minute mark:
