Ah - well - investing is easy for you - you've got about 70 years to achieve what you want.Yup, I'm about 40 years away from retirement.
Except the next 70 will not be the same as the last 70
My life horizon is only about 10 years and even though your 50-25-25 PP plan makes sense I wonder if it is appropriate for me with respect to Gold. I'd need to buy quite a lot more and I'm have difficulty accepting that at its current price. I last bought gold in the 1990s. Maybe I'm better off taking my profit and buying some more sedate investments like VOO/XIU, AGG/XBB and some more single malts..
