An email came in with an interesting idea to take a look at what the Federal Reserve portfolio of bonds might look like. We gave it a shot and compared it to the t-bill ETF return.

Hardly realistic.  Where's the 1.2 trillion of Freddie and Fannie mortgages unconstitutionally and illegally bought by engaging in fiscal policy?

The symbol MBB is an ETF portfolio filled with FNMA, FHMA & GNMA bonds.   Mix it in with whatever % you would like and give it a try.

FWIW, The total return chart I get tracks this other bloggers chart at +10%
