That looks like a lot of market exposure to me -- for a retired person.
Right now I'm just worried about not losing my butt and am pulling back on market exposure.

Trying to figure out a good allocation.
70% bonds? 75%?
30% exposed to the stock market? 20%? 25%?
Get out of the market altogether?

Right now I'm not sleeping too well.

AngelSpouse pulled out of the market completely near the end of last year. He went all-cash and he still has all his money while I'm down enough to live on for at least a year or more. That hurts.

What to do? What to do?
