Sounds like you have a reasonable strategy mapped out. Many have pointed out that govt surpluses should cause a shortage of Treasures in coming years. That could have the effect of driving up prices and driving down interest rates.

Oil prices are still worrisome and full employment potentially means inflation and higher interest rates--but probably not until after the election (unless it gets really serious). So declining interest rates are not a sure thing by any means.

If you really believe interest rates are headed down, I suspect that stocks will benefit more than bonds.

Thanks for sharing your thinking. Best of luck to you.
