Thank you everyone for your replies. I feel more confident now with the wisdom you all have shared with me. Now, it is on to worrying about how to proceed with the gold purchase, so I"m heading over to read that forum.

Reading this just answered a question I'd earlier asked tonight. EFTs DO pay dividends! I have never owned one and assumed that that they did not.
After I read the above did a search and found this...
"Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) pay out the full dividend that comes with the stocks held within the funds. To do this, most ETFs pay out dividends quarterly by holding all of the dividends paid by underlying stocks during the quarter and pays them to shareholders on a pro-rata basis. Jun 22 2019"
That means I CANNOT use the daily prices of TLT to determine the full return between certain dates.
