Too late for what? There are too many types of bonds ( I bonds, corporate bonds, muni bonds, etc) and ways to hold them to put in a post. What are you looking to do with the bonds?

What are you looking to do with those bonds? Are they for short term, long term, what account will they be in, etc? Can’t answer the question with no information

I would argue it’s the right time to get into individual bonds, not too late. Rates have a little way back up but if they do decrease over the next few years at all then you can lock in 5-7% yields and some growth on the bonds as rates decline.

Individual bonds are based on availability, so it really depends on when you invest as to what’s available.

D1 I have tge same question. How do you buy individual bonds.. how many years to buy for , what interest rates to look for etc

Go for I-bonds that are tied to inflation, that’s where the $ is right now and you don’t lose your investment, even if rates go down when the rate resets in 6 mos. Better than any savings account right now. Must hold for a year but great for a secondary emergency fund. Max you can invest is 10k/year.

Yup already in it since Jan this year. Any other individual bond suggestions?

Yes, too late. Send me your $.
