Over the past 52-weeks, you’ve received over five percent on any combination of short to mid-term agency, corporate, and/or treasury bonds, and that’s not counting today’s expected bond rally. Remember, bonds tend to go up when stocks go down.

Your key takeaway is to make sure you have your bond and gold component dialed in well before something like a coronavirus hits the markets. Your portfolio’s immune system, if you will, may be better able to handle the gut-wrenching volatility. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, though.
