1ST QUARTER FIXED INCOME
Fixed Income Market: Prices of Government bonds rose as investors sought some place to stash their assets. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, used as a benchmark for everything from mortgages to student loans, fell 1.218 points to .691% over the quarter. (Yields move inversely to prices.) The yield has continued to decline in the early days of April.
We prefer to find higher yielding alternative investments such as municipal tax liens.
