Bonds, bond funds or target maturity funds?
« on: April 23, 2014, 08:11:33 AM »
Im curious what people are doing with their bond component (if they have one).

In an environment where eventually interest rates will rise, are you holding bonds directly, buying target maturity etfs or just holding regular bond etfs? Also, what time to maturity are you holding?

For me, 10% of my portfolio is in short term govt bonds (I'm Canadian). It's not awesome, but it should help with volatility.
