I need to balance my investment portfolio. I check on bonds and was disappointed that the yields were not as good as I thought.My portfolio is a retirement (tax free for now) IRA, so tax free muni's do not make much sense to me.I have cash in my brokerage account. The rate they are paying is now 5.50%, because it is tax free, for now, I calculated the yield at about 7.5%. The account also is very flexible, which is a plus.My question is:1) should I leave it where it is?2) should I continue to search for bonds?3) Or am I missing something here.I would certainly apreciate some help here. I am 58 years old if that helps with your recommendation.HELPThanx and FOOL ONADDENDUM. I have bought into FNM Fannie Mae, should I increase my holdings there?
