I have 80% of my retirement account broken down into ETF's.
60% US Large Cap
10% International Equity
10% Emerging Market
10% US Bonds
The other 20%
50% Ford (F) Bought in at $10.05 in October
50% Apple (AAPL) Bought in at $450 in late Jan. Sold at $650 in Aug. Rebought at $520 a couple weeks ago.
Was up roughly 12%, so 10% if you take away inflation.
I am going to keep the 80/20 split for another couple years. I am still young enough to where I can take risks. That is just Schwab retirement wise. I have 6 Kilo's of .999 silver and 1 kilo of gold in my safety deposit box back home. Will be purchasing more when I leave UAE in a couple weeks to go on vacation. Dealers here are pretty awesome with price. I have a pretty good relationship with the gold dealers at the souqs, so I get a good deal when it comes to price. Customs loves me when I go home, they always get puzzled when they see a dense metal bar sitting in my bag.
