I'm starting to get involved in bonds, and was hoping I can bounce my current hope it works strategy off you guys. What I plan to do is buy $1000 lots of 13 week treasury-strips/notes. (I forget which)Usually they earn 4-6%, so couldn't I to start out, just put a few thousand in theses bonds, and every 3 months collect the intrest, plus whatever difference there is from what I bought and the face value? Does this sound like a good plan for starters, or am I missing a key part? I just want to start out small for now, a few hundred every 3 months, until I feel a bit more comfortable buying bonds. Thanks
