Gene, I'm 48% cash (money market). But I would still hate to lose 75% of that other 52%. Im too old now, I think, to ever recover from a devastating market drop. I might go to a greater percentage of cash if I get really nervous. And maybe use some stops on some of my stocks and ETFs.

One thing I have learned is that the market goes down a lot faster than it goes up. Unfortunately.
