I also own: CUSIP:912810ED6 US TREAS BOND 8.125%8/19 DUE 08/15/19, which I was planning to hold to maturity (deo volente).


Nice position.

If you hold to maturity, you'll sacrifice 'time-premium'. Run the numbers. Would it be better for your account to continue to collect the coupon, or to flip and capture cap-gains?
