Below are some tips on how you can invest wisely. Below are also some tips on what to be aware of.

THE MARKET AND THE ECONOMY
Always keep your eyes peeled on the market. There are two places where the rates rise. One place is in the bonds. The other place is in the bonds with long maturities. Why? It's going to take a long time for the bond to be repaid. The coupons will do very little to help offset the problem.
Your best bet is to look for bonds with higher coupons and shorter periods. These bonds will work better with rising prices. The best type of bond you can get is a junk bond. They usually go for ten years or less. They can bounce back more when it comes to time-sensitive issues.

Floating rate bonds are also a good way to go. If a company is doing well, this is a good sign. A well-balanced economy is also a good sign. If both of these are in tact, this will offset any issues that might arise. Keep your eyes peeled for these indicators.
