Possibly The Worst Time to Invest

, I mentioned that I had recently set up a passive portfolio comprising 70% stocks and 30% bonds.

While I do not welcome a crash in stock and/or bond prices, I am nevertheless comforted by the fact that there is a defence mechanism inherent in the portfolio, namely, portfolio rebalancing.
