I am new to this Bond's so, I am not sure which one is a good investment like state or federal bonds? Is it worth to Invest now?

  • Before answering this, we need to know what your goal is? (Are you a first time investor? Diversify investments that are 100% stocks? Heard about bonds, don't know what they are? Etc, etc.) – RonJohn Mar 8 at 21:16
  • Thanks @RonJohn for your comment. Lets say I have 100$ in my account and I am not a aggressive investor whats the best way to invest this 100$ apart from regular stocks so I can save some money from tax. – Jo......... Mar 8 at 21:19

Both open-end mutual funds and ETF's are good choices for municipal bond investments.

However, if a leveraged investment is wanted in municipal bonds then there are closed-end mutual funds available.

A bad time to invest in bonds just involves looking for a short duration. A good time to invest in bonds involves looking for longer durations.

Some municipal bonds avoid both federal tax and state tax.

  • Can you share some good bond names – Jo......... Mar 9 at 4:41
  • Any big name mutual fund or ETF is okay. There is a good list of closed-end funds at cefconnect.com and as listed under "Daily Pricing". – S Spring Mar 9 at 6:21

They're both safe.

Is it worth to Invest now?

If for the long term, then yes, putting a portion (say 20%) of your investment fund in bonds is a good idea.

Lets say1000$ roughly

You're pretty much stuck with bond funds.

so I can save some money from tax.

Then you want either treasury bonds or tax-free municipal bonds from your state.
