Thanks. Since I write it on finiki directly and save repeatedly, it takes a while to build the file. :D But I'm now ready to let the thundering hordes in. ;-) --Shakespeare 16:14, 14 December 2012 (MST)

Not much of a horde, but there was a lot of thunder from a virtual edit war on a variation of this theme: Individual Bonds vs a Bond Fund (see the Discussion page). Note the page discusses rolling ladders vs. bond funds. Would anything be of use here? --LadyGeek 19:37, 14 December 2012 (MST)

I'm not surprised at the disagreement; we've had similar arguments here. Unfortunately, ladders are prone to mental accounting because the effects of interest rate changes are not always directly visible. I shall link the main page (not the discussion page).--Shakespeare 19:43, 14 December 2012 (MST)

If you google "Fixed income ladders" this page shows near the top. If you google "GIC ladders" it doesn't. Should it be called "Bond and GIC ladders"?--Shakespeare 18:23, 19 December 2012 (MST)

I googled bond and gic ladders and finiki came in at #4 result! With fixed income ladders, a Bogleheads forum thread showed up on the first page - no mention of finiki or FWF. "Fixed income ladder" is a universal definition, whereas GIC is outside the US. The page title doesn't appear to matter. I'd keep things as-is. --LadyGeek 18:30, 19 December 2012 (MST)
It appears Google checks your origin - "fixed income ladders" from my location gives finiki near the top. But will leave as is. --Shakespeare 18:44, 19 December 2012 (MST)
