My retirement spreadsheets assume a 7% annual return. My question is if we do get a real bull market and our investments increase more than 7%, at what point would you move some money to less volatile investments? Do you let it ride or say after a 10% increase sell some.

I ask because although I would love to see my funds increase 20 or 30% like in the late 90's, I also don't want to see them decrease the same amount as they did in the 2000's.
