Great simple article on SSB. As much as i am interested in SSB, i need advise on the timings of applying the bond on the best scenario (in this case, its the second issue). Currently even till date, i am still seeing an interest rate of 2.44 for March. Any insights on when there will be rise in the interest rate?

Hi Will, no idea on that, and I think it is difficult to forecast that well.

i recall reading an article that analyzes when it would give better returns if one should sell off existing ssb and buy a new higher interest rate ssb. anyone recall such an article? if not, could be a future article from kyith? (lazy me speaking. heh...)

i think there is such an article written but this portion is just a small part of it. but you missed out on 1 month of payment,i believe the rule of thumb is, switch if the interest difference is substantial enough to be worth the hassle.

Hi Kyith Praying the yield in 2016 can reach or exceed that of Nov 2015.
