Greetings, MaineFool, and welcome.

<<Which of the following options would be feasible and suggested for investing $278.00/month electronic investment plan:

1. Short-term Treasury Bill Money Market Fund.
T-bill funds only with maximum maturities of six
months which DO NOT USE DERATIVES.

2. A no load global bond fund such as Payden &
Rygel Global Bond Fixed Income A.

3. A no load balanced mutual fund with a four or five
star Morningstar rating.

4. Other.>>

What are you trying to do that money, invest it or preserve it? Your first three choices are ultra-conservative by most standards. If that's what you desire, then any will do for reasonable protection of principal. However, they won't do much for gains. If this is money you know you will use in the next five years or so, then the choices are probably appropriate for you. OTOH, if you're looking for growth, you will probably be better off in a no-load, low-cost S&P 500 stock index fund.
