Percentage of Capital Allocated to Futures

I'm curious how others trade their capital "allocation". Do you invest in stocks, trade or day trade stocks or are members mainly futures traders? What I really want to know is what percent of your available assets you commit to trading futures specifically? Personally I'm considering moving to about a 75% allocation towards futures. I trade QM, EC, ES, TF, and US systematically and heavily automated. I've done well through the years but want to ratchet up my futures exposure.

Thanks!

This is truly an interesting question.. If u truly do well I'll give u my risk capital, and I'll go play golf !

I've posed this same question to the some of the gurus that run trading rooms, but they would never give me a straight answer..

I've never done well in futures,, so my allocation to futures is just money that may be gone today or tomorrow..
My real money is in the "holding the bag" emerging market funds and oil / gas income partnerships etfs.. Though I have some munis etfs and cmo etfs which bring in dividend income.. (till big Ben looses control of the situation,, but then we will all be screwed then)
I'm just the millionaire next door from saving during my working years plus social security and VA health care.. So I risk the social security only in futures.. I don't bet on golf either just like to hit the ball..
