If you really want to know about bonds, especially munis, buy the book: Bonds, The Unbeaten Path to Secure Investment Growth by Hildy and Stan Richelson. Published in 2011; it's the bible.

Gary from CO posted over 2 years ago:

It would be helpful to know if there are any ETFs that invest primarily or exclusively in Municipal General Obligation Bonds.
Suggestions welcomed.


Don from PA posted over 2 years ago:

I have both of their books. They are great for bond info.


Richard O'reilly from CA posted over 2 years ago:

It's nice to know there exists this kind of useful info. about Munis.
Is there a source that lists the risk factor of any particular bond?

Which states prohibit bankruptcy of their municipalities?


Darryl from St Augustine, FL posted over 2 years ago:

I would like to buy some individual municipal bonds. Is there an active market for them where I can buy them? If so where? I do not want a mutual fund through a stock brocker.


Sagar from CT posted about 1 year ago:

where are answers to the questions? Do we have ETF's for Bonds?


Charles Rotblut from IL posted about 1 year ago:

Sagar,

Our ETF guide has a complete listing of exchange-traded funds, including muni bond ETFs. You will have to look at each fund to determine exactly the type of muni bonds the portfolios hold, however.
