    Vanguard VGLT as replacement in the Universal Investment Strategy?

    I am new user on your site, having just signed up for the Universal Investment Strategy. My account at Vanguard gives free trades of their ETFs. I plan to use VOO in lieu of SPY. And either EDV or VGLT in lieu of TLT. I would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.

    On a multi-year timeframe, graph TLT and VGLT, and you will see that are essentially a direct swap out.

    EDV are zero coupons, so a more pure play on interests rates, and more volatile than TLT (also less liquid).

    Vanguard has a good ETFs program

    Have fun
