Greetings to All,

Part of my wife's IRA has a Vanguard bond fund VLGSX.

She is about two years from retirement and I am wondering if this fund is appropriated for the short time frame?

With interest rates not seeming to be raised anytime in the near future, might not a more shorter time duration fund or ETF be better?

Any and all suggestions or ideas are welcomed.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration in this matter.
