Selling of Bonds / Rebalance
« on: March 22, 2021, 09:16:17 AM »
Is anyone thinking of selling bonds and rebalacning their asset mix, if so what are you going to put it in instead
Also what are you currently at for Bonds in terms of percentage of assets ?

Surely you should be rebalancing the other way? Stocks are up near their highs while bonds have been sold off.  Rebalancing would mean selling stocks and buying bonds.

If it helps at all, this is what we are doing.

I don't really think about markets when planning these moves, I just log into my account--on the appointed date--and sell whichever stake is worth more to buy the other.

If you think you have too many bonds, you could also switch the allocation of incoming money such that it's buying 100% stock for a few paycheck cycles until the values are equal again.
