Hi All, the word demographics as it relates to the market has come up lately. It involves the fact that the baby boomers are reaching retirement age and in 5 years there might be a drastic change in the market. Does someone have any thoughts about this? Should we be preparing for a change that may mean that less people will be investing in equities? I am almost 65, and I still invest in equities and plan to continue. Why should the baby boomer retirees suddenly change the way they invest?
