I am thinking of selling my Vanguard Total Bond Market fund, in my IRA, for a TIPS bond. My thinking is that this will keep my bond percentage the same but protect me if and when rates (inflation) ever rise. What do you guys think? I also have a large dollar amount in the Pa Municipal Long Term Fund, in my taxable account. That I don't want to touch, but I just am getting a bit concerned that rates have little downward movement left and I don't want to get whacked completely by a falling bond market. 50% of my portfolio is in indexed (Total Stock Market and EAFE) stocks and 10% in the Vanguard REIT fund. I don't want to change my allocations, just give myself some protection on the bond side.
