Thanks for opening this board. After extensive research and reading I had about convinced myself of the validity of Strategic Global Asset Allocation. Now I think I will wait awhile before changing my portfolio. I would welcome any comments pro or con on MPT and the Efficient Frontier ideas.

I am retired and have allocated my portfolio into a 30% MM and St Bond Fd and 70% in stock mutual funds. I have almost no foreign exposure. Lg Growth is the dominant portion. This idea has served well for the past 5 years, with the MM and St Bond Fd providing approx. 5 years of estimated income needs should there be a large market correction. At least I shouldnt have to sell depressed stocks when the correction comes.

The idea of all equities US and foreign moving together seems to have some validity but I am sure they do not perfectly correlate. It is tough to decide on what is correct. All responses appreciated.

Dawg on!
