You know, your response here is precisely what I posited two years ago on a Morningstar bulletin board...and got no replies. My query was, if I can hold an individual bond to maturity and lose no money even though bond interest rates AND bond yields (2 separate metrics) are going up, then why should bond-FUNDS lose money as rates go up?

Glad to hear someone else thinks this must be due to individual fund members cashing out!
