A few thoughts in no particular order......do you have a written set of plan/goals. It is much easier to think things out in advance of a "problem" and have a solution already thought out....what do you think is an appropriate % of stocks. Don't sell stocks to buy bonds thinking they are less volatile. Unless you hold a bond to maturity, they can be just as volatile and lose your capital as well....when do you need this money. Next month, next year, next decade. If you need to money in less than 5 years, it has no business being in anything other than a money market fund or CD, IMHO....FWIW, I was doing some rebalancing today and had 2 stock positions that were >20% above intended allocation. No hard core reason to sell other than to keep them from becoming too dominant a position. It is my rule, I'll stick to it. JLC
