The interest rate on your bonds will stay solid as long as that is the type of bond you puarchsed. Some bonds have step rates or zero coupon rates. However, it sounds like you are buying a regular bond that has a fixed percent with a fixed term. Each day, the market price of the bond fluctuates based on its selling and buying values. As long as you hold it to maturity, none of this matters. The only down side for a bond these days is the solvency of the company. Like Lehman Bros. Their bond holders just received a notice that they will get $600 from a $5K investment. Bonds are a fab investment right now. Best investment is a mid term bond that would be held for five years. You can get some good ones out there with a term of five years with a 7 plus percentage return. Anything over five years, plan to hold them for a while. Eventually interest rates will go up and if you need to sell your bond, you may not get the full value.

I mostly agree with the first post. Interest rates uulalsy start to rise when the economy is doing better. When the economy is doing better then the companies that sold the junk bonds generally are more secure so the interest rates for junk falls or stays the same. And the higher yield becomes more attractive. But that only works for a while. When Fed starts raising rates high enough to slow the economy then junk gets hurt more because they more risky and generally more in debt. To simplify they perform better at first and worse later because you are weighing two factors, interest rates against default risk.

In addition to the fatorcs already alluded to by others, bear in mind the effects of inflation. While the yields of the bonds will not change for you if you hold the bonds to maturity, the purchasing power of those amounts will be affected by the changing cost of living especially if your plan involves bonds with many years to maturity. (Just a thought that should not be overlooked.) http://omcyfzhb.com [url=http://elncqsl.com]elncqsl[/url] [link=http://mwlqxhpokg.com]mwlqxhpokg[/link]

You should have some coencrn. If interest rates are above the coupon rate for the bond, you should demand original issue discount, i.e. pay a price below par value. Also, if you cannot hold the bonds until maturity, higher interest rates will depress their value at the time.

U will see huge disparities beaucse some people still have CDs with those high rates from a few years ago of maybe 5 or 6% with a few still around at 7%. But now interest rates have been driven to historic lows and for a CD issued today, 2% would be a huge number. You can find today's rates at Bankrate.com or in Yahoo finance under the personal finance tab, click on Savings in the lower right of the page. CDs can go out 5 to 10 years but it is still hard to get 3%. http://eogemkq.com [url=http://zvibvkdpwq.com]zvibvkdpwq[/url] [link=http://gqziis.com]gqziis[/link]
