Intermediate Treasury

Any thought to putting that in as a possible investment choice? Right now the only options are LT Treasury, LT corporate and 1 Month Treasury. I have seen historical 10 year bond return data (can't remember if it was Ibbotson or somewhere else).

I'm not sure how historic returns will help with treasuries considering interest rates are at historical lows due to government interventions, and national and global debts are out of control. Just understand there is more risk to bonds than there used to be.

Completely clear with some very scary models I've seen from Wade Pfau for the next decade. Unfortunately Firecalc doesn't include that and only looks backwards.

Regardless, since Firecalc already has the LT and very ST Treasury historical data, then if the data exists for intermediate treasuries, it would be good to include it.

I think some people have run the model with bonds split between LT and ST in an attempt to model the intermediate scenario.
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
