Re: Does the yield spread effect the volatility?

yield spread has nothing to do with volatility then. So even if the spread between a 10 yr bond and a 30 yr bond is narrow it does not effect the volatility of the 30 yr bond? In other words, if interest rates fall then 30 yr bonds still rise in price much more than 10 yr bonds even if the spread is...

Does the yield spread effect the volatility?

these days the yield spread for 10 vs 30 is very narrow. The 20 yr and the 30 yr are equal (yesterday at least). Does this effect the volatility so that the usefulness of the LTT is less?
Is the question clear?

Re: Ques about the purchase/sale of Long Term Bonds

if you buy a 25 yr bond then, when it hits 20 yr you purchase another 25 yr bond (the original duration).

Ques about the purchase/sale of Long Term Bonds

Just getting my feet wet in understanding this portfolio - a lot more to learn... Is it the correct procedure to buy 30 yr bonds and then hold them for 10 yrs? And then sell the 20 yr bonds in order to buy more 30 yr ones? At the time of the "forced" sale there is either a capital gain or a capital ...

HB audios still available somewhere (else)?

when I click on the audios in the archives at the Harry Browne site they are all broken? There is a statement on the site indicating that the administrator is aware that at least some links are broken but also says not to contact the administrator regarding this. Is there another source for the shows?
