Read this short paper. I'm not saying follow the portfolio pattern but it will show/explain a little about different asset classes.http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=962461You have several allocations around 1%. In dealing with a portfolio of $150k, that means about $1.5k invested. Fees and spread on buy/sell will take a good chunk of the return away. IMHO, you can eliminate these and others to keep things simpler.To stay within your model (and use ETFs) you could do the following.Stocks: 15% IVV (US), 10% VEA (foreign), 10% VWO (emerging)Bonds: 30% IEF (US), 20% IGOV (foreign), 15% TIPSPersonally, I'd do something like thisStocks: 15% IVV, 15% VEA, 10% VWOREITS: 10% VNQ, 10% WPSCommodities: 10% USCIBonds: 10% IEF, 10% IGOV, 10% PCYJLC
