Asset Allocation for IRA Risk Reduction Portfolio

What does the asset allocation plan look like for the ITARR style portfolio?  Below is the current Dashboard for the Euclid, one of the risk reduction test portfolios.  The target percentages have the white background and the actual percentages currently held in the Euclid have colored backgrounds. 

Depending on how the basic ETFs close today, this portfolio will undergo major changes tomorrow.  Checking ETF prices moments ago, only VTI is priced above its 195-Day EMA.  IGE and VNQ are very close and could easily close higher by the end of the session.  Regardless of price changes, I need to reduce holdings in Large-Cap Blend.
