Wouldn't something like a 5 year CD work for now. High Yield Rates for*1 yr CD
Ladder them, so that you're looking at one getting out every 2 months or so?
Other than that, I'd have to think almost any MMA (money market account) would suffice.
That's basic though. It won't increase the value drastically over the long term (i.e. hedge against inflation).

I'm not all that hung up on "consistent", I should have not included that in my goals. I know there will be volatility reaching for a 6%/3% real return at current market valuations and interest rates.

However, I am interested in the best AA for as low of a SD as possible.

Thanks LOL and everyone else for providing the links, I haven't made it through all of them yet, they are great information.

Myself: your response came in while I was responding to LOL. I am looking for 3% after inflation, CD's and MM do not take me there.
