Three fixed income selections.

Each Friday, I provide three closed end funds invested in fixed income that I would consider putting money into today.  I allocate 40% of my main taxable portfolio to these and similar high yield instruments.  This covers my basic income needs for the year.  Importantly, I am free to trade with the remainder or NOT trade if nothing attractive is on offer.  Don’t pick up nickels in front of a steamroller!
