... 1/3 gold, 1/3 bonds, and 1/3 stocks ... Score 1 for the Permanent Portfolio concept.

I thought permanent portfolio had 25% cash, 25% bonds, 25% stocks and 25% gold.

In any case, find where the bull market is, and get in there. It is easy to make money on bull markets than doing bottoms up analysis and hope you have covered everything.

For sometime fixed income is the bull market and I don't think we have come to an end of it. I can easily see another 2 or 3 years where the current interest rate and the policy to continue, if Obama wins the election. We still have a long way to go in decimating the savers and seniors.

At least to me it is not clear what are Romney's plan, especially now that he has Ryas as his VP pick.

PS: For some reason, the savers are not considered as capitol providers unlike rich and no one thinks they need to protect savers.
