"he got his head handed to him (in both fund performance and his job) by trying, and failing spectacularly, to beat the market."

For those of us who are not doing too well at MI, we may be in the same boat as he was. We think we can beat the market, but fail badly. Maybe we will come to the same conclusion as he did- passive beats active.

That thought has come up of late.

My ultimate plan for going "Passive" has been in Asset Allocation (fund of funds). But still thinking about it.

Such as:

FFNOX = Fidelity Four-in-One Index
AOK = iShares Core Conservative Allocation
AOM = iShares Moderate Allocation
AOR = iShares Core Growth Allocation
AOA = iShares Core Aggressive Allocation
