Noticed that the FEDs have made 2008 I bond fix rate to 0 but it has a
higher variable rate that previous I bonds with fixed rates. Has anyone
noticed that on Treasury Direct Webpage? I don't know how that effects
caluclations I wonder why they are doing that.
Is there a reason to avoid 2008 I-bonds? I guess if you keep them over
one year and their flexible rate goes to 0 you could cash them in and take a 3 months pentitly. If the rate is 0 for the last 3 months of the bond I guess your pentitly would be 0 for those months? Is that right?
Is there a better safe inverstment these days?
Thank you,
