Thanks for the responses to my note. I have ordered the book suggested. I will see what it has to say.

I don't really need to take anything out for a couple years. I am just thinking ahead. Rebalancing my portfolio is something I try to keep track of but haven't seen a serious need to do so recently. The biggest chunk is in a very low cost S&P Index fund. I have an annuity that is paid to me monthly as the result of a structured settlement. The principal isn't mine but is paid until death of both of us (wife & me.) I treat it as a bond fund for calculation of portfolio balance. That seems to work fairly well. I am about 65% stocks, 25% bonds, and 15% cash equivalents and have been that way for quite some time.

Again, thanks for the thoughts.

Anyone else have an idea or something to add???
