Re: What happens after the risk shows up?

60/40 (aka 90% equity risk) has the cards stacked against it at the moment. At least the people who are 100% equities seem more in tune with the fact that they're taking risk. I get the impression that people with 60% equities (let's not kid around, these are almost surely 80% US, 20% foreign, on av...

We only have about 2.5% (of total of all accounts) in there at the moment, the only other fixed income choice is a junk bond fund (presumably to prevent people f...
