Risk parity


So like 70% bonds?


I was scaling up my fixed income and metals exposure in January/February, so that has softened the blow of the last few weeks. Not trying to time the bottom, so I’m putting some cash into equity indices again and averaging down


Doing the exact same. No way I have the knowledge to cash pool effectively and deploy it all at the bottom. Might as well just lower cost basis and ride the waves as they come.


Following! I am definitely contemplating some changes, would love to hear what others are thinking


Serious question regarding investing/savings and I know I may be overly paranoid about this. I have a chunk of cash that I want to move into my investments- want to buy low while I can. I have a separate emergency fund but my mind goes to worst case scenarios at times like this: what if I get laid off, it takes me forever to find a job, I run out of money and have to move back in with my parents in Ohio...How are you all managing your emergency funds and do you feel pressure to put aside more in times like these?

Absolutely keep an emergency fund. This is the big one

I’m a male and the partner (also male) on my project low key requested me to send a photo after he learned that I’ve been going to the gym a lot for the past year and built some muscle. Lol is he into me or what


I'm watching my 14 year old nephew for a couple of nights and want to make the most of the rare time I get with him. I could always come up with fun little activities when he was a toddler but what would a teenager enjoy? Any suggestions on what we could plan to do together would be appreciated. Keeping in mind that Saturday is forecasted to snow up to 1.5 feet, so not a ton of flexibility for getting too far from the house.


For those that moved out of their parent’s place, how the heck do you get used to paying rent? I feel like I’m being robbed and have no idea how to save anything meaningful now in NYC

Just recently starting physically writing out a very short and concise to-do list at the start of work each day. Can’t believe how much it has helped me stay productive during the day!! Feel stupid for not doing this properly earlier so sharing in case it helps someone else :)
