>> This may be a little premature but can anyone speculate as to what the fixed rate component of the I-bond will be when it changes in November, 2001? <<

Unless the economy turns around and yields on savings start rising, I can speculate confidently: quite a bit lower than the current 3.00%.

Now if CD rates and money markets do a sudden and sharp about-face upward, this speculation no longer applies.
