- Total 4 mutual funds (2 growth stocks, 2 small-mid size company stocks)

After black monday in the 80's, I sold after the crash only to see the stock market kick ass shortly thereafter. Told myself I woundn't make that mistake again.

Now I'm 100% in stocks, or at least 90%, and fighting the urge to dump 1/2 into a bond fund just in case everything tanks.

After watching 2012 gains go down the drain, is it time to just take my lumps and avoid the risk of a major loss?

Any input is appreciated,
