Have you checked your returns on your IRA or 401k statements? You could be disappointed these days. While many may be scratching their heads trying to figure out what the problem is, many are turning to self directed IRAs hoping to find alternative ways to earn a little bit more, make up for the losses they have seen, or maybe to just diversify what they currently have. You as an investor need to understand the risks associated with self directed IRAs, as there are class action lawsuits around the country from defrauded investors and they are on the rise. Ed Butowsky, wealth manager, financial advisor, and managing partner of Chapwood Investment Management, joins Fox News to explain what a self directed IRA is and why are investors investing in them.

Countless investors are unaware that they can easily sell their bonds prior to maturity and secure a profit today … And investors today wonder why their advisers steer clear of any discussions of the sort.

Ed Butowsky Explains Why You Should Consider Selling Bonds

Many investors are unaware that they can sell their bonds before maturity and secure a profit today. Most financial advisers, however, typically avoid any conversation about selling bond investments.

Because of the sluggish economy over the last three years, interest rates have dropped to historically low levels. When rate drop, bond prices rise, which is why investors have large unrealized gains on their bond holdings.

Conversely, when interest rates rise, bond prices drop. Interest rates are starting to creep higher, and as they do investors will see these unrealized gains evaporate.

Most bonds are selling above the par value, which is the amount investors receive at maturity. for example, many $100 par value bonds are currently priced between $104 and $110. As the maturity date gets closer though, the value of these bonds will drop toward their par value.

Millions of dollars in profits are currently embedded in interest-rate-sensitive bonds. Savvy investors should consider selling some of their bond holdings and take the profit while they still can.
