You really think bond prices are going to drop that much?

I dunno. My crystal ball is a bit cloudy.

My point is simply that new investors in bonds and fixed incomes at these prices need to keep a close eye on them. Hold to maturity can be fine, but if forced to sell early, it could get dicey. These are not put them away for a while and ignore them items.
