How Long-term Market Cycles Retail Investors Should Be Measuring Their Investing Performance???

How long-term market cycles retail investors should be measuring their investing performance across many market cycles???

Ownself beats ownself?

Last Bull at Oct 2007 vs Historical Peak and Current

Last Bear at Mar 2009 vs Next Bear (2019/2X) and Current

  2. Hi Uncle8888,

    If talking about the risk-exposed Tap 3 portion of your portfolio, then currently having 64% stocks to 36% cash (warchest) is perfectly logical, when current markets are not giving compelling valuations or yields.

    I will say the main risk-on catalyst will be Trump-Xi deal. But even then may only provide a short-term boost to markets (12 months??).
