The writing is on the wall. The rest of this December should be strong, but I have taken the liberty of cashing out of small caps in my retirement portfolio. I am placing 25% of my 401 into the Wellington Fund and then diversifying the rest into large cap value. Im also going to cut my holdings in the foreign markets and aiming for large cap value in the regions in which I am invested. Im not completely certain if this will help me out in the event of a recession, however, I feel that aiming for large cap value is probably a better answer then growth or small caps. Before any event, there is always a warning. I feel the warning bell has been sounded and thus we must prepare now instead of waiting for what the spring will bring to us.
