I know market timing is a bad idea. But I bet most IRA deposits are made in the first calendar quarter, being the early birds that hope to get more tax free return for 2010, and the procrasinators that are making their last-minute deposits for 2009 tax year, just to beat the April 15 deadline. And a lot of these contributions will go into govt/corporate/junk bond funds, or into treasury direct accounts. And after record offerrings in calendar year 2009 for corporates, the pickings should be somewhat less for mutual fund managers.... So, will the bonds I'm holding today be worth more in three months due to increased demand only?????? (Of course there are other factor that will affect their price). Darned if I know the answer...just asking.
