Re: Intermediate Term Bonds

And I just wanted to say thanks for being the sort of place that has discussions about duration of bonds since minutes ago I made a B (yay!) on the Investments class of my CFP course from the College for Financial Planning and had to calculate the @#$% duration for a number of questions. You guys rock!

Re: Intermediate Term Bonds

So, what's the duration of a 5 year TIPS, at about 2%?
