I recently switched from paper EE Bonds to electronic through TreasuryDirect. I assumed that the interest rate for the bonds that I purchased would be as advertised for that particular period. Recently, they have advertised 2.61%. I didn't notice the "Market-Based Rate" part of the program. So...I have two questions:1)What, specifically, does "Market-Based Rate" mean?2)Will the bonds I purchased maintain the same interest rate throughout their interest bearing period (30 years) or does it change according to current market conditions?I'm a little embarrassed by not looking futher into this before jumping into the program.TIA,Bill
