Oh - wow, they didn’t lower the fixed component as I expected. That’s quite a surprise!

I expected the 1.90% for the prior issue, as that’s what the last six months CPI told us. If you bought last month you would get 6 months of 2.83% before dropping to 1.90%.

Yes, Iíve been getting that rate on a bond bought last November. Iíve only held I Bonds since 2015 (didnít know about them before) and donít consider them as part of my investment portfolio at all. Rather I think of them as savings, just as theyíre named.
