Pretty fucking terrible. You should be able to find simulated portfolios that are planned like this - the one I found made a 12% return over 4 years.

It's fine for the 0.0001% of investors that need long-term ultra-low volatility and are willing to sacrifice their returns to below market levels to achieve that goal.

I find it hard to believe there's a single person on all of Veeky Forums, let alone Veeky Forums, that meets this criteria.

that's only good for the growing wealth stage 100% index funds 20-25 years...

after that you should diversify and go more bonds and safe investments with a steady withdrawal rate.

Why would you want a portfolio that never changes or adjusts based on your life situation?

25% cash? I could not tolerate that amount of lazy money.

By the books, done right on average gives 6-8% return yearly. So far there's been 2 years where it lost altogether. I'd go with it honestly. While 100% stocks will get your there as well, stocks can fail altogether where you would lose all your shit. Read up on it, don't ask Veeky Forums as a lot of people are prejudiced like christians or some shit.

Bottom tier. You should know exactly when currencies are fluctuating in value and be able to safely ride gold/usd.

If you aren't capable of that stay away from investing.

Not even once.

90% equities, 10% investment-grade bonds or whatever the fuck low-risk shit you want.

I mean, if you want to have the best shot at maximizing net worth over time.

Real estate can only go up and make you money fast, or crash and leave you with property you can pay off quickly and then rent out or something.

Bitcoin is up and down but worth the overrall investment because when it goes up, it goes up exponentially.

Maybe I'm not looking deep enough into the economy of these things, but it seems like sound investments to me.

Where do you see the conflict user? I'd like to know.

but it seems like sound investments to me.

Can I simply ask you personally why you think bitcoin will continue to grow at the rate of the past?

"past performance is not an indicator of future returns". If you're investing into bitcoin because it's made big gains in the past you're:
A - Too late to the gravy train
and B - making a poor investment.

I'm actually interested
