Must Bond Investors Fear Rising Interest Rates?
Here's the best advice from the article:

Avoid experimenting with untested products or strategies during rising rates.
I can already see the various 'new' products that promise to beat rising interest rates. No doubt the sellers of these things will make money, but "Where are the customer's yachts?"

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.

My bond allocation is ST and intermediate gubmint bond index funds. I assume that the fund will adjust to rising rates, perhaps not in lock step, but that as bonds in the fund mature, they will be replaced by lower cost but higher rate bonds, mitigating the yet unseen rising rate problem. Rolls dice...

Have Funds, Will Retire

...not doing anything of true substance...
