If you truly want to set it and forget it, that's fine. But you could also take note of the fact that these things run in cycles.

Just as an example, one of my holdings is DFE (Europe Small Cap). Up 27% for one year, way better than its benchmark. A long term approach is great, but trends can be very useful.

You might want to consider adjusting your settings from time to time.

I thought growing old would take longer.
