Quote from: ManInAVan on December 31, 2018, 06:03:17 PMThat's some helpful info thanks. I've been looking at buying Muni's also through Fidelity, but the numbers are pretty confusing. For example, it says it has a 5% semiannual coupon and doesn't expire for something like 6 years, but it also says the yield to maturity is more like 2.4%. I'm so confused by these and how that could be possible. Is it just trading that high above it's initial value? that still doesn't seem to account for the difference in the yield though. I'm sure there's something I'm missing, and I've just gotten confused somehow.

There are a lot fewer offerings to consider with this criteria which makes a lot more sense than what I was looking at. Thanks for sharing your experience!Do you also invest in treasuries or corporate bonds, or do you mostly stick to Munis?

Anyway, I know very little about muni bonds but they seem like a very viable hedge against inflation. Would you recommend muni bonds for someone who is still 14 years out from retirement?
