I am senior citizen who retired 20 years ago. I notice that my IRA which is invested in Vanguard ST bond has been going down for the past week or so. What is happening to the bond market?
Should I consider transferring this IRA deposit to the Vanguard MM which has almost no interest payment at all, or should I let it stay in the Short Term?
I remember a month or so ago, the bond market went down almost every day for about a month. Is the same thing happening now?
I have a few other Vanguard investments and am thinking of closing them and taking the loss and transfer the money to a bank CD.
