Although bonds generally present less short-term risk and volatility risk than stocks, bonds contain interest rate risks, the risk of issuer default, issuer credit risk, liquidity risk and inflation risk. This effect is usually pronounced for longer-term securities. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
