Vanguards version of asking "Are You Still In?" 


It is pretty telling when Vanguard starts sending out emails to its customers about re-balancing (certainly not called market timing!  - or is it?) with comments like:


"Buying stocks now may actually run counter to what many prudent investors should be doing,"

"Are You Still In?"


Bonds?  No!

Vanguard Long Term Treasuries are down 12.6% YTD - with most of that fall coming since May.  And yet with all the bond selling going on, the money is not being recycled into stocks.  Hmmm.

 Big question is where would park it in today's market?

Good chance you would be parking it near the top of the stock or bond market like folks buying a house in 2006 at the top of the housing bubble.

I grew up in Detroit and gave blood in the UP during the summers. :D   August is better than June, unless you don't mind the little critters.
