Ok, not to beat a dead horse here, but do you mind sharing which bonds specifically invest in, and what your strategy is/will be on going in or out of them?

Hi There,

I don't have any way to answer that question. I probably should have been explicit from the get go that my fixed income investments are funds and ETFs that hold bonds rather than the bonds themselves. Holdings have been ETFs (LQD, SHY) and funds (JASBX, JAHYX). LQD is a long term bond fund and as such doesn't really fit with what I'm trying to do; it'll be going bye bye.

The strategy is to keep the allocation around 20-30% of the total portfolio.
