Newbie here looking for safe harbors with some kind of yield. Have preferred ETF index funds over mutual funds for the equity side of my AA--lower cost and out performing most mutuals my deciding factors.
Last month Pimco came out with a bond ETF fund--TRXT--touted to closely follow their very large bond mutual fund which has an equally large initial buy in. Any thoughts on this relatively new trend? I understand interest rates have only one way to go but believe we're good for 18 months or so.

There are a lot of "talking heads" when it comes to bonds, but I would ride with Bill Gross and his expertise anyday. I think he has been referred to as: "The Warren Buffett of Bonds", that's pretty lofty.........
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).......:)
