Hi Bob,

Thanks for responding. In all candor I was fishing for a reason to keep it simple and do an overall asset allocation, using the early buckets for more buttoned down investments, more cash protection. At least as close to cash protection can have in a portfolio filled with 100% equities. I like to keep the number of investments between 20-25 for the usual reasons; not investing more than 5% in any one stock or ETF, and the ease with which I can cash out in the event of an Armageddon. Having trailing stops is just not the protection I want. I would like to move fast and that's hard when you have 50 2% investments.

If you don't think it matters, one or the other, that's fine. I suppose that was the answer I was looking for.
