Ziggy, I never compared the results to stock funds. I just stated they were all down. I'm sure the bond funds haven't dropped as far recently. However, being diversified between the two still adds up to loss.
Look, I'm not trying to get into an argument, but apparently bunny is going to beat the dead horse. I'm looking for the best way to move forward, was hoping to get a discussion as to how best to do that.
BTW, at least living in the hill country, you've missed the real estate bust for the most part. I'm going to be down there this weekend.

So let me get this straight...you resurrect an old argument thread with a taunt, make claims that are proven wrong using charts produced by MSN finance (which you then say are manipulated), then you make self contradictory statements, demonstrate a weak understanding of investment principles, and this is worthy of reporting to the moderators?

Let me know how that works out for you.

Figures that's how you'd see it.
I re-opened a thread by asking if people wished their funds had cash available. You took it from there. Did anyone hold a gun to your head and demand you respond sarcastically?

Eh, it was pretty much mandatory.

Your comment at best would make people feel bad about their recent losses. At worst it was a lame attempt to claim that the funds you sell to people at exorbitant prices might demonstrate an advantage by holding cash.

Which wasnt born out by the data.

So given that you were somewhere [moderator edit] and asking for trouble...you're right, I shouldnt have clicked on 'view post'. Neither should anyone else who has you on ignore.

Whoa! It's like you're in my head! You just know exactly what I meant!
Pretty impressive responses considering you've claimed to have me on ignore.
Orrrr, perhaps I was just asking people if they wished their funds had more cash?

BTW, yet another post to report. Keep em comin'!
