My 70/30 equity/fixed income allocation with both the equities and the fixed income....

Well since we are sharing horror stories how about this - started a new job end of last year and as a result I had to roll over my 401(k) into the new company account - so simplest thing for me to do was just convert to cash near the end of november and wait for them to open the account - transfer the money from TDAmeritrade (which is not a swift process)and now for that account here I am reinvesting so my 98/2 cash/equity position mostly in money markets has done nicely over the first quarter. Maybe I should beat the drum - I beat the S&P and BRK.
