Thanks everyoneanother questionthere is a fundamental difference in the holdings between the 2 funds.PTTRX has > 80% in cash and has lower % holdings of Mortgage Pass Thru (dont understand what it is). PTTRX also has higher overall average yield and lower duration compared to FGOVX.seeems like PTTRX is a safer bond with higher return due to the amount of cash holdings. is there any tradeoff i am missing ?ofcourse the reason for higher yield with PTTRX is higher average maturity compared with FGOVX and lower exposure to treasuries.do i need to be worried about exposure to mortgage pass thrus ? I am worried about exposure to Mortgage backed Securities (MBS) due to the current financial crisis.sorry for too many questionsthanks
