Greetings, Indy, and welcome. You asked:

I have read every single one of the columns since it started. I doubt I'm alone in this; there must be quite a few Fools who enjoyed reading the columns and found them informative. Pixy, I hope you can continue this; possibly combined with a theoretical portfolio as another poster suggested, or simply as a (semi-)regular feature.

Only the real-money portfolios have stopped because I can't provide a newly modified and backtested mechanical investment strategy that covers sufficient years of history to give me the confidence of potential success I require. I have every intention of continuing the weekly column, and it will continue to address retirement and retirement planning issues as it has in the past.

As to any theoretical ports, I side with DHatch on that issue. Those are easily constructed on an individual basis, and probably should be so they match the risk tolerance and withdrawal strategy of the person involved.

Regards..Pixy
