Google has just introduced a new feature that shows, in relative terms, the activity for specific search terms over time. Click here to see the Google trends for Savings Bond searches.
I’ve set this up to show searches that included savings bonds, savings bond, i bond, or ee bond and to only include searches from the U.S.
You can see a jump in searches each time new rates are announced in May and November, but the surprise is the large number of year-end searches. Could those be related to people wanting to give Savings Bonds as gifts? Or is it related to year-end bonuses and investing decisions?
