    Hardly any wonder there …re cash holdings,have done the same 100% cash….it’s eggpie time out there in never never land…the world is full of debt fuelled risk…the world is full of companies at high pe’s ( all of their money in auction terms) ie the high water mark for earnings…the time for caution is now and it is not surprising to see a higher rachet into cash with smsf capital..particularly as you would expect that those managing the funds have a more acute ear to the ground on what is happening in the world today.
