Why are bond funds going down now?
surfmuse 06-08-2007, 12:38 AM | Post #201534 | 
Maybe you can help me understand this. I thought when stock values went up that bonds were supposed to go down. Then when stock prices dropped, bonds went up. What I have been seeing lately is stocks went up and up and bonds came down. Now stock prices have gone down, precipitously, and all of my bonds have gone down in value even more than before. What is going on? Specifically, I have about 7.5% in Vanguard Total Bond Index fund, 12.5% in Vanguard CA Intermediate Term Tax-Exempt (muni) funds and another 10% in longer term individual govt. bonds.
