this isn't retirement or long term money. In that case, it doesn't belong in a bond fund. (You might want to read over the portion of the FAQ on bond funds again, as I don't think you really understand the risks to bond funds in a low-rate market.) I'm researching a short term investment strategy that will preserve capital, but potentially return more than a money market deposit account(with more risk obviously) paying about 3% yield.The needs to "preserve capital" and "potentially return more..." are incompatible. The risk to a bond fund's NAV increases as rates go lower. From your description, this money should only be in CDs or a savings account or treasury notes; not in bond funds.Hedge
