While reading on the Retirement Investing Board, I came accross an approach which says essentially1) put 1 year's income (say 6 or 7%) in a money market2) put 3 years income in a bond fund (short to intermediate)3) keep the rest in stocks (index or growth or what ever)The idea is if stock take a serious dive, you can leave your money there and don't have to take losses. If stocks go up, then you just keep the system full.Also I found an excel spread sheet which gave a suggested distribution between bonds and stock based on your expected life expenctancy. This is a very good board.
