My wife will be joining me in retirement next year. I have a small pension of $850/mo. We are not yet eligable for Social security. The "problem" is I
have a very widely diversified portfolio. I do a lot of trading, call option buying and call writing in IRA accounts and have substantial amounts in "solid" companies in regular accounts.I also have a few funds and some Fed notes. I want to "get out" of this trading binge I've been on and just enjoy the benefits if I can be shown just how to allocate my investments. The "trouble" is I now have three times the net worth I figured I would "need" just four years ago.... AND I love playing the market!
