Second Quarter Market Review: A Sea of Green
If memory serves, it’s been a while since every market on Dimensional’s Quarterly Market Review summary page is depicted by a green arrow of positive returns. As diversification would have it, there’s usually at least one red one in the mix, indicating a corner of the market that delivered negative returns that quarter, by a little or a lot.
So that seems like good news. But what’s it to you? Is it time to shift your dollars around, to try to ride that wave of success?
Too bad we have no way of knowing just when that wave might crest. So before you see green and decide to chase after it, remember that this quarter is really no different than any other when it comes to maintaining your investment portfolio’s steadfast global diversification … or establishing it if you’ve not yet done so.
