    Thanks Nodrog quite a good video on readdressing your risk profile/tolerance during a turbulent bear market and adjust your portfolio allocation to address if need be. Its okay to admit you didn't get your allocation right between equities/bonds.
    Again the importance of having a plan in place.
    Depending on your main source of income will impact your equity allocation e.g. Government employee with a secure job and income would represent a bond and therefore that person could have a higher equity allocation and vice versa a person working in manufacturing or in a business representing more of a equity in their income could possibly have a higher bond allocation.
    As always good to get different perspective.
    As you have mentioned many a time, comes down to the how well you sleep at night :rolleyes:

    Great advice. I've really liked Larry's advice over the years. His "three-legged stool" of ability, willingness and need is great to keep in mind.
