<<"So if the previous inflation rate is 0.2% then the total yield on I-bonds will be 2%??? How many people among those who only look at the current rate would purchase them in that case?">>Not many. You want to wager a guess? I suppose we should start a guessing poll, it's getting close enough to the witching hour.I'm thinking they won't be willing to give a fixed rate that will really look competitive. But I hope I'm wrong. If they get 3%, I'm maxing out (maybe less), even if it means taking 6 month penalties on CDs to get the cash.I don't think they will go to 3%, probably to 2% or maybe a long shot to 2.5%.If they go to 3%, I will max out. If they go above 3%, I will max out, and my wife will max out, both paper and electronic.
