A question, as I am not familiar with bond/bond funds. Suppose today I buy 10 year treasury bond worth 10K yielding 4.8%. Does this mean 1) As long as the bond price doesn't change, I will get $480/year. 2) Suppose the bond loses its value and it is now worth 9K, but the yield is 6%. Does this mean I will get interest payment of $600/year? 3) Also no matter what the yield is on maturity, will I get back my principle 10K? What is the good source for a newbie to learn the basics of bond investing? Thanks...
