I never invested in OEF bond funds. But, I have heavy investments in CEFs. Even today, I bought a few tens of shares of a new CEF (HIX).

 Not exactly a surprise given the time it will take to pour $Ts into the economy to get unemployment below 5% to revive small business and the depressed sectors such as auto, airlines, retail, REITs, leisure, hotels, etc.

Most T Bond yields will be lower than the rate of inflation which begs the question of how will fixed income retirees survive the prolonged low Bond yields without lowering their expenses and/or living more cheaply.

I am now 75/25.  R/O 80/20  Perhaps too high for an 81 year old.
