I am fortunate enough to have had some cash earlier this year(2022) and rather than buy tech stocks as has been my preference for about 30 years, put that money into Treasuries. At this point(10/30/22 I have what is termed a short term ladder. All the Tbills in my account have yield to maturities of 90 days or less.

My strategy going forward is to lengthen the ladder as the rates climb. At this point it is a given that the Fed will raise .75 basis points in the upcoming meeting. My hope is that because of the new transparency wrt to Fed that I can time my ladder to catch something near the top which I am speculating Tbills to reach 6% +/-. Going forward from whatever that top is the inflation rate should then be well under the rates for Bills, Notes, and Bonds of all types.

My reasoning for beginning the thread is to learn from members with experience in these markets.
