The best you can usually do is buy the bonds themselves and hold to maturity. You will still receive full face value at maturity. Hence, you do not take a loss. The market value of the bonds will decline as rates rise, but that only matters if you must sell before maturity.But these do not appreciate with rising interest rates.To appreciate with rising interest rates, consider buying a series of CDs. As each matures, the next will probably earn more interest.
