I'd say you're learning just fine.What you're finding is, it is hard to get a good yield with any "investment grade" corporate or muni bonds right now. If interest rates stay around where they are now (or lower) for a long time, it will turn out that buying at these yields was a good idea. Otherwise, waiting is the best policy.I think there have been a lot of people chasing bond returns (from capital gains plus yields on funds), others fleeing to what is not as safe as they think, and game players going with where the momentum is. I'm afraid there are going to be a lot of seniors, especially, who sought safety in bond funds, who are going to be looking at more losses.
