Dear Readers. Those that need the safe long term income, even in depreciated $dollars need to pay attention. While the short rates can go as high as 5.65 ( 2year) notes or even higher( god forbid), there needs to be some accumulation of these treasuries to be done here. GNMA's are a good Idea, 2 - 5 Year notes are a good Idea, So are some CD's of the same duration. You find them at Bankrate.com. I suggest that you start with 25% of the money you need to deploy and do the rest as we reach the rest of the 3 stages to invest 100% investable funds.
Note, by 100% of investable funds, I mean the funds that you want to keep in fixed income instruments, not all your money. Right!
