Either Fidelity or Vanguard are fine. Keep in mind that "loading up" on bond funds isn't going to necessarily preserve capital if when the govt starts raising interest rates. I have seen bond funds take a 10-15% loss in a period of rising interest rates, so be careful..........

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

Fidelity Contrafund and PIMCO are some pretty good choices. I am a VG fan but those funds look OK to me. One advantage of an IRA is that you can hold stocks of interest as well as funds. MY Wells Fargo IRA has allowed me to lose more than if I had just held total market index funds but it is in areas of interest like REITs, Berkshire Hathaway, foreign bonds and the like.
