    What is your investment strategy?

    Do you prefer, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or diversification?

    diversify.. but if you cannot ..then at the moment I'd go long on stocks ..and will certainly keep my hand in bonds ..

      I've had my hands in bonds for a while, and it sure hasn't hurt.

    At the moment I only use banks and credit unions. If I did choose one which you asked about I might begin with bonds.

      Bonds are rather safe, but I would never go lower than an "A" rating.

    No one wants to lose money they invest, that's why we need strategies. It is very important that you have a plan in place to invest your money in various kinds of investments to get a good return.
    I believe in taking professional's help while planning my investment strategies.

      If you are not knowledgeable in your moves, that is a very wise decision, Steve.

      I agree with you there.  You can make a lot, but you can do just the opposite, too.  You're very brave on options.

    Diversification does not imply that you have to choose between the three.  You can have both stock and bonds and not be adequately diversified.  You also have 20 different mutual funds and not be properly diversified if they all have a high correlation.  Countless academic studies in the field of investing have demonstrated that about 90% of performance is dictated by Asset Allocation.  Diversification is what happens within an Asset Allocation.  Proper asset allocation means exposure to a multi asset portfolio, which would then be diversified within each asset class.  For the average investor this is best achieved through mutual funds and ETF's.

    Attached is an academic piece that demonstrates the benefit of a multi asset portfolio.

      I have had mutual funds for decades, and have found them to be the best performers.  Thanks for commenting!

    We use Relative Strength Asset Allocation strategies. This methodology keeps you on the right side of the market, meaning in stocks, bonds, a mix of both, or cash. It has proven to be a profitable strategy and a stress reducer.
