In 2018, the author's preference among the seven basic portfolio strategies outlined in Demoostify, is unchanged from 2017-- 60-40 Static. It has the advantage of providing a reasonable rate of return and reduced volatility, while requiring very little work. A 60-40 allocation is more appropriate for older, more risk averse investors than 80-20. Static strategies can be riskier than dynamic or momentum strategies, but demonstrate solid risk-reward performance in market environments driven by financial engineering, with few downturns, when the threat of recession is low.
