I am really trying to determine if munis are right for me. I am in NJ. Want to stash some money that we *might* need in 3-5 years. Want to get more than 2% return annually.

Bond funds worry me. I'm worried about the effect of rising rates. Maybe I'm not considering the risk properly? I mean, a 9 year average duration seems pretty susceptible to rate risk, no?

Been looking at OTC individual bonds, as new issues arent forthcoming..

Interesting point on Bond Index.. hadnt considered it from that angle...
