Hi all,
I have my IRA split 70% equities and 30% bonds in a 7-fund coffeehouse portfolio.

See here for explanation and funds in portfolio: http://tinyurl.com/w1cp

The standard is a 60/40 split, but since I'm 33 I thought I might go 10% more aggressive.

Anyone think this is unreasonable or a bad idea? I can always rebalance.

Thanks,
Mac
