Yesterday the Bureau of the Public Debt announced earnings rates for Series I Savings Bonds and Series EE Savings Bonds, issued from November 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018.

Series I bond, or iBond, fixed rates are determined each May 1 and November 1. Each fixed rate applies to all I-bonds issued in the six months following the rate determination.

Market & Bob Brinker Marketimer Update

Friday the S&P500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at new record highs.

The Nasdaq & Russell 2000 are down 0.2% to 1.3%, respectively from their earlier highs.

My Explore Portfolio, with many small cap & NASDAQ stocks, is just 0.3% below its record high.

Bob Brinker, in his September 2017 "Marketimer" newsletter, remains fully invested with his model portfolios one and two 100% in stocks.  He has not taken any profits or raised any cash for any potential corrections or bear markets.
