Thanks, Pixy, for the reply. Yes I'm talking aboutasset allocation. Perhaps I can better explain what Iwas getting at with a concrete example. To keep itsimple, suppose a mix of 80% stocks, 20% money market.Naturally I would expect the value of the stocksto grow faster. Say I start with $8000 and $2000.Suppose the stock doubles, while the MM fund rises10%. I now have $16000 and $2200. Adjusting back to80-20, or roughly $14500 and $3700, seems kind ofself-defeating; the original strategy counts on the 80%growing faster, and by putting some of those profits back into MM, you lose some of the compounding effects youwere hoping for all along. But of course by NOT makingthe adjustment, you are in a potentially more precariousposition. Seems paradoxical, hence my confusion. Is thatany clearer? Many thanks for your thoughts,Londo
