Ok,Fixing Fixed Income

Dear Readers. Those that need the safe long term income, even in depreciated $dollars need to pay attention. While the short rates can go as high as 5.65 ( 2year) notes or even higher( god forbid), there needs to be some accumulation of these treasuries to be done here. GNMA's are a good Idea, 2 - 5 Year notes are a good Idea, So are some CD's of the same duration. You find them at Bankrate.com. I suggest that you start with 25% of the money you need to deploy and do the rest as we reach the rest of the 3 stages to invest 100% investable funds.
Note, by 100% of investable funds, I mean the funds that you want to keep in fixed income instruments, not all your money. Right!

Your statement, should we be staging into fixed CAD income here?

John said...

I just think it is an interesting poll to determine the market's closing price.

This is the exchange, I think from Univ. of Iowa. The do all sorts of futures, from presidential politics to market direction.

Just thought it was interesting

Frankly Dear Garth, you remind me that not even Canadians, but the Americans can benefit from investing in Canadian Fixed Income Securities. Rates are a bit lower, but the Currency will be higher in a years time!
How about making money in a dull fixed income market for Gringos. Canadians as well Dear Garth. Too bad Canadians already have the money in CanadaD.

Dear Boris.....

I guess you are talking about risk-free returns ? I park about 50% of my dollars for income at http://www.geinterestplus.com/interestplus/
and get 5.43% APR....its a money market with daily liquidity. I guess the caveat is that its not as risk free as CD's, but GE might be in as good as shape as US GOV ?!

I still love your work and sincerely appreciate your efforts.

Good To see You back R K. Always welcome here and appreciate your input. I am sure people will read your input. For my taste, I would chose the safety of the GOVT, cause they have one thing GE does not have. You know what that is right? Printing Technology and License to print to boot(: :). Thanks for your kind comments Dear R K. And good trading.

R K said...

Well, I do know what you mean, I guess the ability to sell stock or bands in open market is about as close as they can get :-)

boris said...

Dear R K. Amen.

Thanks, what about Caput cAanada Dollar?

boris said...

Dear Garth, Caput Canadian Dollar is still in force, it is just a timing right... Until Sept and then we go higher again against $US. That is what we always said. Thanks and Regards,
Good Trading
