Most people think bonds are safer than stocks, they are merely less volatile.Hah, try emerging market bond funds. Talk about junk. They are as volatile as stocks.Here's a chart of Fidelity New Markets Income FNMIX (emerging market), S&P 500, and Vanguards Lehman Aggragate Bond Index VTMFX.http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?t=my&s=FNMIX&l=on&z=m&q=l&c=vtmfx&c=%5EGSPCThe big dump in 1998 for FNMIX is when the Russians said "Nyet" and repudiated foreign bond investors.Paul
