This goes along with my idea about BND, but BLV is another bond ETF I buy to hedge against the market that's also a haven against corrections. I've got a lot of funds cycling around this morning as I'm admitting to myself that this tariff hike is happening and there's nothing going to come out last minute to stop it.
I have this Vanguard ETF in my IRA. As money
continues to fly for safety BLV continues to breakout making higher highs and higher lows
Very low cost fund long term and has a nice mix of
various bonds with a nice dividend for reinvestment avoiding some of the market volatility
for the longer term investors
