Whether or not it would be a real portfolio is not as important to some of us as seeing how some type of portfolio might work in real life. It would be educational to follow, for example, what would happen to a hypothetical retirement portfolio composed of something like 35% bond fund, 35% S&P 500 index fund, 15% Nasdaq 100, and 15% Rulemakers, where 5% is annually withdrawn to supplement a retirement. Will such a fund produce long term annual gains under appreciation or will it spend itself to zero over a 30 year period. I suspect it would work fairly well, but it would be educational to me to find out and to evaluate such over a "real" 30 year period. I am just not computer savy enough to set one up.
