Next year at 56 I'll retire with about $80,000 to rollover into an IRA. I'm 80% invested into stock funds now (zero in bonds) and would prefer not to move that money. I get the idea that about a 30% position in bonds would be a good idea from what I read. Q? Does this general idea make sense and if it does, what bonds would be a good idea. I like funds but bond funds don't seem to be doing well. I don't want to risk the principal.
