Ok..here's my situation. I'm 2 years from retirement. My employer-sponsored retirement investments are in a 403(b) with TIAA-CREF. TIAA is a fixed guaranteed contract, and CREF is the equities (mutual funds) side of the plan. Currently, TIAA is earning 3-4% interest, and CREF investments are doing much better. My monthly contributions are 60% CREF, 40% TIAA.

I don't even pretend (or try) to time the market, but I'm hearing lots of respected market watchers saying that we may be at a high point, or that future gains may not be as robust as we've seen these last few quarters
