Sounds like you're on track. Your mainly stock portfolio isn't risky if the investments are long term- stock portfolios have actually been less volatile (if that is how you choose to measure risk) than bonds when the hold period has been over 20 years or so. If you measure other types of risk, such as "the risk of not beating inflation", or "the risk of not retiring on schedule", stocks are less risky still. The three ways to mitigate stock risk: diversification, time, and steady deposits of new money into the portfolio.Nick
