I was asked for some good strategies for investing in bonds in a rising interest rate environment, like short term bonds, money market funds, inflation adjusted bonds, and stable value funds. Don’t extrapolate the past into the future. Interest rates may go up, down, or stay flat. Like you, I have no idea what the answer is. Neither does anybody else. Make sure you have an investing plan that is highly likely to reach your goals no matter what happens with interest rates in the short run and in the long run. I prefer a fixed asset allocation strategy. If you had a working crystal ball, stay in cash until rates are done going up, then switch to long term bonds until rates are done going down then switch again. You can hedge your bets by staying short, but there is a very real cost to doing that and we discuss that in this episode.
