Fear of Missing Out

“The biggest chunk of change was allocated to equities in March since June 2007, up 0.3 percentage point in March to 67.2%. That’s the third biggest allocation to equities since July 2007, trailing only two other instances — 68.1% in September 2007 and 68.3% in December 2013. Bond and bond fund allocation fell 0.5 percentage point to 15.7%.” (American Association of Individual Investors)
