Sadly, I don't think anyone can answer your question. Fools believe you should have as much equities as you can tolerate to provide inflation protection for the long term. Your burn rate can be up to about 4%/year. Fixed incomes should cover about 5 years of expenses.Beyond that a diversified portfolio is probably the best way to go, but any studies are inevitably based on historical data. Mutual funds go back to about 1930, but didn't become popular until after 1950. I know of noone who thinks this decade will be anything like any previous decade. So essentially you hope that economic prosperity will continue in the US and that your investments will benefit over the long term.Any talking head can offer a more specific opinion, but by the time you figure out whether or not his crystal ball is any better than yours, it will be too late.Best of luck, but you have to decide for yourself.
