Vanguard's investment chief cautions bond investors

Just saw this... thought you would want to read it.

Bonds have been on a roll, with double-digit returns posted by several fixed income categories this year. Such a winning streak may tempt you to think you've got a free lunch: return with no risk.
That's hardly the case...

Yes. But many are not aware of how the bond market works (and consequently Bond Mutual Funds). Therefore they are chasing yield.

I believe it is being called out as fair warning to customers. Don't come crying when rates go up.

Does VG have any closed-end funds, then you would not be hurt because you keep the bonds till they mature?
