Do you understand bonds? Stocks get all the attention from the media. You hear about how the stock market does every day. Bonds are lucky to get a mention in one sentence. There are many books and websites about investing in the stock market. There are far fewer about investing in bonds. I often hear people say bonds are hard to understand. They shouldn't be.
