I'm still using what qualifies as MI on perhaps a third of my portfolio, but it's very "simple" MI (like Faber's asset allocation method or some of the basic bear catchers) using mostly ETF's and index funds. The rest tends to be either buy and hold or straight asset allocation with threshold rebalancing.

Once I got close to retirement with a more than adequate "nest egg number" I became much more conservative, with a general goal of doing no worse than matching what would amount to a global moderate fund and hoping that the application of MI would reduce the drawdown risk. So far I've been happy with the results.
