if it gets out of whack by 20-25% again ill take more money out of gold and treasuries and buy more equities as they fall.
If I were into rebalancing (which I'm not - I'm a totally unbalanced person ) - I would probably rebalance perhaps at most 4 times a year - on specific non-important dates (not like the last date of every quarter). Perhaps less often. With today's market volatility - I think if you try to rebalance too often - you wind up chasing your tail. Also - I think the point of the portfolio you're doing is more intermediate or longer term than short term - so no need to rebalance all the time. Robyn
