Marotta’s 2018 TD Ameritrade Gone-Fishing Portfolio Calculator

with No Comments

A gone-fishing portfolio has a limited number of investments with a balanced asset allocation that should do well with dampened volatility. Its primary appeal is simplicity. A secondary virtue is that it avoids the worst mistakes of the financial services industry. This portfolio uses all TD Ameritrade no-transaction fee exchange-traded funds. You can read about the changes from last year in our article “TD Ameritrade Eliminated Low Cost Commission Free Exchange Traded Funds“.

For a Health Savings Account, we recommend setting the asset allocation to 100% stocks according to “An Asset Allocation For Your Health Savings Account.”
