The good news is that even our retirement portfolios can undergo a stress test! The test can really be helpful as it helps mitigate the stress points by determining in advance how much risk one is willing and able to take based on one's financial situation and investment objectives. The methodology for the test is discussed very succinctly in the following article. (Marketwatch)
