As another bond ignoramus, I appreciate this discussion and the points made.

Just wondering for Murph's purposes and for simplicity since this is a new area for him, why not just buy outright the ETF TLT?

Also, if any of you have any favored links for novices to learn about bonds, I would appreciate it much. I didn't see a faq for this board.
