I am four years from retirement. A large portion of the assets from which I will draw my retirement income is in an IRA account, but I have a taxable, non-IRA account also. Until now, all of my savings for retirement has been invested in stocks. I have decided to transfer my account to Vanguard and invest in index funds, following the asset allocation model of the Coffeehouse Investor. The Coffeehouse Investor places 40% of an account in fixed income (e.g., bonds).Having never invested in bonds before, I know very little about them. I am thinking of investing 40% of my IRA account in the Vanguard total bond market index fund. Does this seem like a prudent choice? Does anyone have other suggestions? I have not yet decided about the allocation of the non-IRA account. Thanks. WMC
