dear jack, hedge & Msc,I appreciate you all taking the time to respond to my broad question. Jack, your questions are quite useful and I'd like to put forth my responses in hopes of getting more feeback. My goal for the overall shape of my portfolio is: 50% index (or possibly ETFs).* 30% MF cores and 20% MF recommendations that are more speculative. I find myself very interested in David's efforts to identify disruptive and emerging "game changers" *I'm still trying to get a deeper understanding of what differentiates one ETF from another). currently I have 20% in BRK-B (because I consider it to be index of sorts) and 30% in cash.So my funds are mostly allocated excepting the 30% cash.My reasoning for 2-3 funds is the assumption that one must pay fewer fees if one owns fewer funds.Lastly, I consider myself a patient, buy and hold oriented and 90% of my value is in retirement vehicles which I won't be accessing for 10 to 15 years.So really my question (which feels quite pressing) is: Into which indexes or ETFs do I put the remaining 30%? I hope this provides a clearer picture for feedback.Thanks again and be well.
