The last 24 months have convinced me of the importance of having say 4 or 5 years worth of retirement income in principle secure instruments. I plan on retiring in about 5 years. If I start this year purchasing 5 year bonds, I will have income from these and taxes for the years until retirement. On the other hand if I wait and purchase some 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 year bonds at the time of retirement the equity market might be in a downward funk.This all leads to two questions:#1 What is the "preferred" method of creating the initial laddered low volatility investments?#2 What options other then government bonds should be considered? Thank you and have a nice day.gordon
