mjcalab; What if rate 18 months from now is 7%??First thing that comes to mind is that I would be very depressed because I would have very large losses in the stock market. But that's probably not what you are asking. I'm under the impression that future interest rates cannot be predicted. So I feel ok with the highest rate at the lowest risk when I have funds to invest. If rates continue to go up as you indicate, I will calculate, along the way, the point at which I would be better off selling, taking into account the early withdrawal penalty, If there are good value stocks at low P/E and their dividends are close to the CD rates then I would probably buy stocks, otherwise I would look for the highest yielding lowest risk fixed investment.
