Mine could be described as 100/0% Equity/FI weighting and 75%/25% income production vs. wild ass guesses. }};-D

Similar to mine.

My guesses are based primarily on some technicals that I have learned and tweaked. They have worked for me +90% of the time. The hardest part I find is being patient and waiting for everything to line up. As the saying goes, “Action is not necessarily production (productive)”. I made that up! :) Lol.
I learned that with these technicals the price does not matter. Note I am not a daytrader.
I have the buy fairly well figured out as for the timing and safety. I know a slow pitch. But often I still sell too early. More effort is required to improve for which I feel no real rush.

Back over the years since 2008/2009 I see so many stock on the TSX & NYSE that have gone up approximately 4 - 8 times & more and these could have been realized by simply buying and sitting back and watching.
They are dominant well run companies that should continue going forward no matter where the economy and governments take us. Many dividend paying also which is a bonus.

With regards to U.S. stocks I am always concerned about the currency exchange and what that could do to the returns if/when the U.S. $ craps out because the U.S. is broke and unwilling to work towards rectifying this. As such I have missed manny opportunities in the U.S. market.

Based on history I still believe there is a major correction in the not too distant future.
