THE LEAD COMMENT
My own “home-made” definition of diversification is that everything should not / can not / will not go up at once. Because, if it does, it could also go down at the same time, which could be disastrous. The other important point to remember about diversification is that it is a tool, not a single collection of investments. Diversification for a 30 year old can . . . and should . . . be very different from diversification for a 60 year old. In all cases, I encourage you to consult a professional advisor.
