How much cash should you have as a percentage of your portfolio?

A common sense strategy may be to allocate no less than 5% of your portfolio to cash, and many prudent professionals may prefer to have at least 10% to 20% on hand. In general, I always recommend having about 5% of your net worth in cash or cash equivalents. This way, an unforeseen emergency can always occur. In addition, you will always have some cash to take advantage of market sales.
