My personal asset allocation is:

 

35% CD's & T-Bills

25% Private Equity limited partnership (not invested in any banks or finance company's!)

25% equity-linked structured notes (all mature this year in 2023)

15% invested in MASFX (iMGP Alternative strategies Fund)

 

Just curious how many here have cut way back on equities and/or trading/investing and decided to go the liquid route.... I exited equities in October last year and moved it to cash and I keep rolling over 3-mo. T-bills and each roll captures higher and higher rates.  I have CD's I purchased 6 months ago (with 4.10% yield) that mature this coming week and I'll take the proceeds and purchase more T-bills.  

I see absolutely no logical reason to put this cash to work in equities anytime soon.  We have this SVB fiasco, we're on the precipice of WWIII and we haven't even begun to see corporate layoffs yet!

In the technology sector alone, from January 1st through February 28th, layoffs are over 128,000 compared to 161,000 for all of 2022: https://layoffs.fyi/

Also in cash, CD's, eyeing Treasury's.

Right now 3 mo to 2 year Treasuries seem the place to be.

Cycle I follow point to last week of July for a good bottom.  That's why I am looking at T-bills with late July maturities.
