Hanging in at 70%, as pensions cover expenses, so I can take more risk and hopefully afford a more luxurious nursing home.

+1. Well, not in retirement yet but saving enough for LTC is a definite concern as there's a history of dementia in the family.

I underestimated our equity position in the poll, but we've been adding to our stock mutual fund holdings as the market has dipped. Currently stand at 38% stocks with 8% cash. We'll put a little more into an equity fund today.

I'm at 45% which is within my target allocation. No plans to do any rebalancing until 1/2016, if needed.

Rebalanced to 53% equities in Jan, 2015. Got up to over 54% equities at the peak in May. Down to about 52% now.

56%...goal is to get to 60% for ten more years, then drop back to 50% as earned income goes away.

The way the market is moving, we need a poll like this once a week.
