Question
Hi Todd- One last question for you if you don't mind.  Do you feel it may be a good idea to sell my bond funds?  seems like a rate hike is on the near horizon

Answer
if ur funds are not tax free municipal then i am not truely qualified to say as i only buy tax free munis that are no load.

my opinion is I have traded since 1985 and have never found bonds an acceptable tool.

i will give u what i am in right now.

I am watching ibm to see if it ever breaks 170.  which i am starting to doubt will occur till after jan 2016.

and i currently hold cat options that are good till jan 2017.

they are the 85 dollar calls i bought at 700 a contract and expect to get 830 to 850 by may as cat will have a ex dividend in april and i feel the specialist will run this stock to jack the people who reinvest their dividends.

sorry i cant be more help as bonds never appealed to me with their low rate of return.  I like the 15% i should get from my cat trade.  even if i have to wait til july. big deal.  thats why the option is good till jan 2017

good luck

I retired in 1996 at the old age of 39 by using city based utilities and leap call options. on stocks like ibm and wal mart because you can control these stocks for 2 years for ten cents on the dollar.
As of 1998 I got married and went to work driving Big Rig in 2004 so I could provide my 2 daughters,who are 4 and 8 as of 2007, with QUALITY AFFORDABLE health insurance. THIS job still allows me to trade but will cause you a slightly longer wait for any answer.. I apologize for This but my families welfare comes first..
