I Bond 6 month rate for November

For those who own I Bonds, barring a miracle of the fixed rate component being raised above zero, the rate has been set based on previous 6 months CPI. Starting in November the new 6 month rate will be 1.76%. If you are planning on purchasing you can still get the current 2.2% until the end of the month. Getting harder to make a dollar off fixed rates even if it's an inflated buck.

Thanks for the info. I just bought my first I bonds two weeks ago and will continue to buy $25 in bonds every week.
