You did not answer the question.... if they were TIPS with 3% over inflation, I would not sell them....


Others will have better info on bond funds.... I only have ST Corp and Hi-Yield...

I have been locking in my profits on TIPS by gradually selling them off over the last 6 months or so with the idea to re-buy in a year or two.

I just couldn't bear to see those 20 - 40% gains when rates hit bottom all slip away. I am just parking the money mostly in short term CDs in the mean time.
