The post responded to reflected that time frame.

Let me re-address this issue because I think it is important to distinguish between the way I read the post and the way you seem to...

The poster mentioned his returns for the last 17 years...and then asked how bond funds would help him. I read that as meaning forward, evidently, read it as backward looking. Fair enough.

But quoting the stats for the past 17 years when the next 17 virtually cannot do the same...the least you could have done is provide a rider to that effect.
