Re: Poll: Your Portfolio Tax Diversification

taxable 15% traditional IRA 55% Roth IRA 30% We have spent the last few years converting to Roths ages 65 to 70 and have arrived at the RMD state this year. It has had a smoothing effect on our income tax and is projected to do so in the future. it's a good mix for us. Paco Sabio

Re: REGISTERATION FOR 2012 BOGLEHEAD CONTEST

1389.65 will most certainly be the number. A little higher than last years prediction but we will have some revision to the mean now when we need it.

Adrian,
Tampa works for me as well. At some point an expert in spreadsheets and web querry from yahoo finance, morningstar pages etc. would be helpful. Mine are useful to me but not elaborate nor extensive historically as some on the forum have shown.

A net is a series of holes connected by string.

You can pick your nose but not your friends.

All generalities are untrue.

All improvement is change but not all change is improvement!!
