Anyway, what are your thoughts about changing allocations based on age?


FWIW --i like the "stomach test". if your stomach
changes with age, change your allocation. if it
doesn't, don't.
but keep in mind that as you sell stocks to buy bonds, you'll
incur some transaction costs and taxes... that, at
least, could have been delayed.

(about 90/10, stocks to cash. just dont' like bonds
at all)
