I thought the SF Minimum Income was well above the cutoff for contributions to both a 401(k) and an IRA?
SF is also a big fan of the backdoor :rimshot: .

Also, there's no income limit for a traditional IRA--even if you can't do the backdoor, you lose the tax deduction, but you still have sheltered growth which can pay off in the right circumstances.

And for the big timers: I've written here about the "Mega Backdoor Roth" before. Saw this post the other day that implies that Fidelity has just made it *way* easier to do a mega backdoor if your 401k is through them. With some institutional backing, it might be easier to convince employers to set up 401ks in a way that allows this.

Kind of happy I sold that big tranche of the S&P fund I posted about several weeks ago and moving it over to VFIDX, a Vanguard intermediate bond fund.

My 401k is now through Fidelity and we allow after-tax contributions. I will need to read up on this for next year as we are fine this year.

Nice humblebrag, brah.
Actually, it was designed to be contrast to the oft seen on Sty-Fo retrospective announcement on trades (regulars here in this thread don't tend to do this but just within the last week someone in the CE did it big time.) I hung my ass out when I told everyone I was moving a big tranche out of the S&P into bonds and could have well had egg on my face at this moment. I'm also tickled at the move's success as I've never been shy about admitting I'm 95% "buy an index and hold indefinitely."

I'm just joshin' ya. Old coots like you can't mess around! Plus you've been mentioning a Very Secret reason for your moves recently.

Part of the reason is not secret, namely, my impending old age. The part that is secret has accelerated and will either happen or not happen by the end of the year. If it happens I'll talk about it.

Impending? You're old already. I'd call you out for being a fatty too, but I saw Ed's tits today, and I can't unsee that.

Anyone follow this Risk Parity 3x Leverage ETF strategy thread on Bogleheads?

HEDGEFUNDIE's excellent adventure [risk parity strategy using 3x leveraged ETFs]
https://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=272007

I don't pretend to understand all of the backtesting data and discussions (also sheer amount of replies) but find it interesting to read and follow the debate.
