    What to do?

    Iím down 4% YTD, 6% from the all time high. I have been retired for 12 years and donít require income from these investments for day to day living. This is just a legacy to leave to our children st this time. Should either of us wind up in a nursing home, that would change our needs. What would you do, stay in, or get out?

    If you are only down 4% in the decline we have, then I would say you are positioned well. And I wouldn't change a thing.

    I wouldn’t sweat the legacy part; you guys need to worry about yourselves.........anything leftover for the children should just be considered a bonus.

    You mentioned it's a legacy fund. You answered your own question my friend.
