Re: 7 Investments that you don't need

Seems to be a well balanced plan to me. I wouldn't suggest playing the currency angle any more than you are. 40% foreign will serve you well if the $ declines more and is still diversification if the $ holds or appreciates slightly.

Re: 7 Investments that you don't need

One of the reasons I took ER in '89 was to be
able to invest in international funds in my roll-over
IRA. This was just before big time RTM. I got out
soon after and did not put my toe back in until
early 2004. Hopefully I am wiser now and will
stick with my current 28% allocation to Total
International and International Explorer. But
watch out ..... RTM is lurking.
