The whole idea of total market and total bond funds is that your portfolio will buy into the total u.s. bond/equity market at the ratio that makes up the market. It is a way of owning a diverse portfolio that truly represents the u.s. you can change your aggressiveness by changing your stock to bond ratio. With a midcap and bond you may have more volatility and less predictability.
Since when are Boglehead portfolios predictable?
Less predictable is what I wrote. Jack Bogle made predictions on what the market would do in the future. Predictions are not guaranteed.
