How can I earn income with bond ETFs?

Bond ETFs generally pay a return on a fixed schedule, though the amount of payments can vary. Here’s a hypothetical example of the income that could be generated from a bond ETF at the end of a year, using an average yield of 3.5% on the bonds held in the ETF.

For illustration only. Graphic depicts a simplified relationship between average yield of bonds in ETF and market value. This simple explanation is hypothetical and does not depict actual investment results and does not reflect taxes, fees, inflation, or tracking errors. The assumed rate of return used in this example is not guaranteed.
