Iran Portfolio Risk

Hi: I am sitting on a bunch of non working cash in TIRA, thinking about
DCA into bond funds,I just retired last year.

The last thing I need is to put the money to work and have a large capital loss,due to what I suspect will turn into a big mess.

The only thing I would guess is a sure bet is that oil price will rise.
As for corporate bond funds, don't know.

But also learned from last year that just about all asset classes can be sold off quite fast.
