...Wouldn't a bond-heavy allocation be relatively risky at this time?...I'm not an expert but I have much the same feeling. One thing that I am looking at as an alternative is buying individual TIPS that I can hold until maturity because they have a yield above the inflation rate which might help if interest rates, and presumably inflation, rise together. For a while these had a very low yield but the yield on these has been rising so I am watching these while I learn more. A few years ago for a while they had a yield, above inflation, of well over 3% and I wasn't looking at them so I missed it. If they should get that high again I will be real tempted to put a significant part of my portfolio into these.Greg
