Junk Bond ETF Far Outperforming Other Bonds

Above is a one year comparison chart of several major bond market ETFs.  Keep in mind that some are total market (JNK, MBB and MUB) and some are duration specific (IEF and VCIT), making the comparison a little weak but not entirely moot. 

The point of the above is that junk bonds are the only sector in the fixed income market that has really done well over the last year.
