Does this mean we can finally stop hearing from all of those folks who think any SWR above 2.5% is scandalously irresponsible?

Hating: The bonds I've bought.
Loving: The bonds I'm going to buy.
I'm not smart enough to know and I can't afford to guess.

I remember maybe a year ago hearing Harry Dent say when the 10 year hit 3% the stock market would head down.  We will see if this is another of his bad calls.

Here's my guess at what a healthy yield curve looks like:

Inflation @ 2.3%

Short term treasuries:
4.25-5%

Ten Year:
6.25%

20-30 Year:
7-7.5%

No point in buying bonds until the yields get to that level or better in my opinion.  To much risk otherwise.

I like your thinking.  But I have fixed income anyway.
