    I started lengthening clients' bond ladders yesterday.  There has been some great corporate paper rated A or better that has been looking tasty.  Unloaded around 300k of a Goldman Sachs 6.45% on the long-end today.  TIPS looking solid as well, 5 year at 2.6%.

    I don't know if you guys/gals noticed, but in the last 5 or so years, there was only a brief moment about a year ago when quality rates perked above 6.5%.  I may be jumping the gun, but time to load up.  Newbies should be opening accounts over the phone with these rates.  Time will tell, but I'm officially calling a bull market starting in bonds.

You're definitely the first! I don't know how we can expect rates to go down when they're sooo close to historic lows. Commodity price are still going nuts, there is a possibility for wage pressures & our money supply is still increasing at an unsustainable rate.

Even so, 6.5% is pretty darn good and you can't hurt too many people with that.
