I offered an I-Bond rate prediction yesterday and came up with a 0% real yield as the guess.
Today I am applying the same mindset to EE Savings Bonds. I see the rate falling from 1.4% to 0.5% (give or take).
This week is your last chance to lock in that rate before they reset on November 1st. It is a pathetic rate, but it is better than my online savings account. Further, if held the full 20 years it is guaranteed to double (which would be equivalent to a 3.53% rate).
