No. of Recommendations: 1

I sort of feel like a deer in the headlights. After asking in July
about the 10 year tips as you may recall they were about 2.55% I just
couldn't pull the trigger. Now I wish I had.

So yes I will check out the 5 yr tips in October of course it appears that rate will be much lower.

And someone else mentioned the 5.83% Pentagon Credit Union CD's.
I would have to purchase those on the retail side and the issue of taxes come in to play. This year I will be in the combined state and fed tax rate of 30%. But next year do to a non taxable disability payout I should have next to no taxes. So that may not be much of an issue.

Not complaining to much its nice to have the capital to invest now I just have to put it in the right places because its not a endless stream.
