June 12, 2012 - 0 comments

Interest rates are at historic lows. When interest rates do rise, bond prices typically suffer.

Listen here for my conversation with CFRA Business at Night host Jason McIntyre, where we discuss Vanguard’s recent study of this question. The investor take away from the Science of Investing may surprise you.
