so just an update …..

bought back 170k in gld , 21k in uso (oil) 10k in bitcoin GBTC ….. all the rest is in the 25% equity fidelity insight income model …. right now I am holding off on tlt unless it moves down quite a bit …

I much prefer to use the short term bond and intermediate term bond funds in the fidelity model with some gold and oil coverage ….

i think we can see rates climb a bit so i don't want so much interest rate risk as gold and long term treasuries really are a bet on low rates with that kind of heft .

Put together a little portfolio of unloved assets ...I tried to pick the assets being cast a side .

Oil which I have uso and added more today ..

I split the stock budget with half in eem emerging market and half in mchi China .....and TIPS since I think inflation expectations are under estimated and tips are frowned upon right now ......I will add up to 50% more if it falls enough and then let it ride .

I will hold the whole thing to no more than 100k
