mathjak, I know you are a big stock guy and am curious what your allocation is after this drop. I thought you said somewhere (maybe earlier on this thread) that you were somewhere around 25%. Is that about right? Thanks.

Yes .....


Over all I am about 25% equities...

Very high cash levels though .... I sold a lot of my total bond and corporate bond holdings to be deployed elsewhere..eventually I will work up to 40% or so in equities ... I was actually lower than 25% since the drop but I have been adding on the drops so I am back to 25%

You're short, and I took 5% off the table into cash today... so this means the market is likely to blow up in both of our faces tomorrow, LOL.
