Good for you starting a SIMPLE.

Dodge and Cox Balanced is a wonderful fund operated by one of the best actively managed mutual fund families.

Your asset allocation should not be based on what "others" tell you. That includes posts on internet message boards.

You should decide how much risk you can take. How much pain can you stand when you watch your hard earned money lose value? The neat thing about D&C Balanced is that it has some bond exposure which minimizes your volatility.

Remember you are responsible for funding your retirement. Start saving now. Don't worry about what other people say.
