Another advantage of buying a higher interest bond at a premium is that it is less volatile. The same .2% drop in rates represents a bigger drop relative to a 4% coupon, compared to the same .2% drop on an 8% coupon. So the bond price in the secondary market stays more stable.That is if you are interested in selling on the secondary market.Fredericch
