Discuss all general (i.e. non-personal) investing questions and issues, investing news, and theory.
In the current state of the market and with the current tax code, does the conventional wisdom still hold that you should stuff the tax-sheltered account with all the bonds it can hold and your AA requires? Or, for someone not enjoying the upper 1 or 2% of income, does it make better sense to simply put your best performing investments there? Does it matter whether the non-taxable account is a traditional one or a Roth? At the moment my Roth holds only an intermediate-term bond fund, and two-thirds of all the bonds I hold. My AA is 55/45.

It doesn't seem to matter much nowadays as long as you can switch back to bonds in taxable without any tax consequences.
It's all about short-term opportunistic rebalancing due to a short-term change in one's asset allocation, uh, I mean opportunistic rebalancing, uh I mean rebalancing, uh I mean market timing.
